Determining a Cell’s Formatting
Note, by the way, that the U button is
accompanied by a drop-down arrow. Click
it, and this little menu makes its way
onscreen, as shown in Figure 5–8.

Note the first of the two menu options is
nothing but the default underline—what
you’d normally get if you just clicked the U
straight away. So why do you need it?
Because if you click the Double Underline
option, you’ll indeed draw double

Determining a Cell’s Formatting
You can learn a lot about the formatting of a particular cell by simply clicking in it and
then scanning the information conveyed about it in the Font button group. So, if cell C12
is currently underlined and boldfaced, and features a Bauhaus 93, 12-point font, click
C12 and you’ll see this information in the Font button group, as shown in Figure 5–10.
Figure 5–10. What’s happening in cell C12. The data there is boldfaced and underlined, and exhibits the Bauhaus
93 12-point font.

in C12; and we’re also told about the Bauhaus 93 12-point font.
