Chapter 10. Formatting Lines and Paragraphs > Shading and Bordering Paragraphs

Shading and Bordering Paragraphs

For a finishing touch, you can add paragraph borders and shading to your document. A border may be a box surrounding a paragraph (or paragraphs) on all sides or a line that sets a paragraph off on one or more sides. A border can include shading, which fills a paragraph with a pattern. Boxes and lines can be solid black and shading can be gray, or, if you have a color monitor, they can be more colorful than a rainbow.

Borders are particularly useful in setting special paragraphs apart from the rest of your text for emphasis (see Figure 10.28) or for wonderful graphic effects. If you use Word for desktop publishing, you may find boxes, lines, and shading to be helpful.
