Prose Programs: Windows XP's Writing Tools 169 The Least You Need to Know · Smooth versus crunchy--Use Notepad (Start, All Programs, Accessories, Notepad) for plain text files, and use WordPad (Start, All Programs, Accessories, WordPad) for formatted word processing files. · Wrap Notepad text--To avoid frustration in Notepad, always activate the Format, Word Wrap command to ensure that text wraps inside the Notepad window. · The ruler rules--Don't forget to use WordPad's ruler when setting indents and tabs. It's much easier to drag the indent markers or click and drag tab stops than to do everything via the dialog boxes. · Map those characters--Use the Character Map program (Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, Character Map) whenever you need foreign characters or symbols that aren't on your keyboard.
