What is best option for a box with text that will be converted to Word?

I need to make some boxes with text in them. The document will need to be shared as a Word file.

I want to be able to use styles, include a background color, and have the boxes flow with the text without wrapping.

Using frames seemed to work but the next time I opened the document, the text was no longer in the frames. Then I noticed that the document was saved as a .docx document. Could that have caused any problems?

Before wasting more time, I would deeply appreciate some advice about the best way to accomplish what I want. I am hoping that replies can help me understand under what conditions it would be appropriate to make a box with text using:

a frame a text box
or even one cell of a table

Thank you.
