Chapter 6: Formatting Text
Change the Font, Size, and Color (continued)
Changing the text color can go a long way toward emphasizing it on the page. For example, if
you are creating an invitation, you might make the description of the event a different color to
stand out from the other details. Likewise, if you are creating a report for work, you might make the
title of the report a different color from the information contained in the report, or even color-code
certain data in the report. Obviously, when selecting text colors, you should avoid choosing colors
that make your text difficult to read.
