chapter, or some other document section. The drop cap usually extends from the top of
the first line of the paragraph down two or three succeeding lines of the paragraph. The
text of the paragraph wraps around the drop cap. Word allows you to create a drop cap
for the first letter of the first word of a paragraph.
You will create a drop cap for the first paragraph following each heading in the
newsletter. The drop cap will extend two lines into the paragraph.
