[texhax] Centering "framed box" between two columns

I do believe Uwe was asking for a screenshot of how it looks in MS Word, so
we know exactly what you are looking for.

I am imagining it is something like this but I may be wrong:

| Title spanning columns |

Column  one | Column  two
text  flows | text   also
around -----------  flows
a  box |  TEXT   | around
that   |   BOX   |   this
has    ----------- box of
author info | text   with
or    other | info  about
metadata.   | the piece.

Of course, for the purposes of my rough example, disregard the poor
justification [(La)TeX can do a better job of it than me!] and column/box
separator lines I added for clarity. You may or may not want these lines in
your articles. All the more reason that it would be good to see an image of
what you are trying to re-create in TeX. :-)
