Text in a shape doesn't line up, is it a bug?

I created a triangular shape, and then double-clicked to add text within that shape.  The strange things is some of the text (generally along the 45 degrees angle) is either slightly above or below the baseline of the text (see image below).  Anyone know if this is just a bug or is there something I can do to fix this?  Any help is greatly appreciated otherwise I'll be forced to use Adobe's Indesign which is overkill for this project.  Thanks in advance.


Ps.  I'm using the latest Pages v4.3 (1048) and OSX 10.8.4.

    I wonder if viewing at a greater magnification would change anything. I've not seen this reported before. If you begin abain with a new shape, does the problem repeat?

    No baseline shift on that text?


    Have you experimented with changing the text around to see if this is truely a localised effect?


    We can't see the overall shape to see what is going on.


    I'd love to see the original file (click on my blue name and email me) to check whether this actually a bug or merely a consequence of the Design/Layout.
