Convert shape to mask?

When CS3 creates outlines from text, it generates a shape layer, not a masked layer which previous versions did.

That's great but some effects (write on, stroke, etc) rely on masks.

Anyone know how to convert a shape to a mask?

Thanks to you both. Dave -- Autotrace doesn't do the job.

Frank - thanks for the link.

And finally thank you Jeff Almasol for restoring funtionality that the Adobe Engineers removed.
