(without worrying about printing costs), interactive features (such as hyperlinks), and,
fundamentally, as many “pages” as you need to get your message across. With that said, online
content is limited by the fonts you can use, quality of images, and writing style (online
content should be concise and easy to scan), to name just a few constraints. As you might

printed material are that you can precisely control the page layout of printed content, and
your audience doesn’t need to log on to access your publication.
Often, material is adapted for use in both print and online content. When you are faced

Include color blocks in online materials (such as for backgrounds or navigation bars),
but omit large color areas from most printed materials. Word helps in this
department by including an option to not print background colors and images by default.

Themes for a Professional Look”) aids in quick color switching.
Show hyperlinks online, but verify that all links in printed materials show the actual
Web address instead of the linked text.
Of course, you won’t always be in charge of the content you work with—you might need to
print online content or print colorful pages in black and white, for example. In this chapter,
all of the primary print options are covered so that you’ll be able to control your print jobs,
regardless of whether you are printing online content or designing content to be printed.
