Font Formatting

Font formatting, which is sometimes referred to as character formatting, can be applied to individual characters of text. Word offers a wide variety of options.

  • Font ( Figure 7) is the typeface used to display characters.

  • Font style ( Figure 8) is the appearance of font characters: regular, italic, bold, or bold italic.

  • Font Color is the color applied to text characters.

  • Underline style ( Figure 10) options allow you to apply a variety of underlines beneath characters.

  • Underline color is the color of the applied underline. This is a new feature in Word 2001.

  • Effects ( Figure 11) are special effects that change the appearance of characters. Options include strikethrough, double strikethrough, superscript, subscript, shadow, outline, emboss, engrave, small caps, all caps, or hidden.
