Using Drop Caps

Word can easily create large initial capitals, more commonly known as drop caps, that give your documents a distinct, magazine-style appearance. Drop caps work extremely well in newsletters, particularly those formatted with columns.

Drop caps are so named because usually the first letter or word of a paragraph, formatted in all capitals, is "dropped" into the paragraph so that the first two or three lines are pushed to one side. Figure 22.7 shows an example of a drop cap.
