Brief description of products or services
Your Web site appears on the Internet as soon as you sign up for an Office Live

edit and start typing away.
You find all the comforts of your favorite word processor right on the
Page Editor toolbar. Click a button to change font attributes such as
bold, italic, underline, and font color. You’ll find icons to help you create
bullets or numbers as well as to center or right justify your text.
