Once upon a time, word processors were nothing more than glorified
typewriters. They were good for typing and basic formatting, and
not much else. But over the years, Microsoft Word has become a desktop
publishing program in its own right. This chapter explains a few desktop
publishing features that can make your documents stand out in the
crowd — themes, columns, text boxes, page borders, watermarks, video,
and drop caps, to name a few.
Experimenting with Themes
A theme is a colorful, ready-made design for headings and text. Each theme
imposes a slightly different look on a document. If you want to experiment
with themes, theme colors, and theme fonts, more power to you, but be
prepared to click the Undo button and backtrack as you rummage around for the
right look for your document. Figure 6-1 shows some theme experiments.
