Summary

This chapter has taught you several techniques for creating effective Word documents that are well formed and well organized. Margins, line spacing, headers, and footers can be changed to create a distinct look and feel and can be automated with Styles. Tables of contents, hyperlinks, and cross-references can provide the reader with easy ways to find the information they need within your documents. Many of you already know most or all of these techniques—at least in theory. The challenge now is to remember to use them consistently until they become automatic.
