Assignment #1

Using Microsoft Word, recreate the attached one-page document, which has been annotated in red to help you see the different elements on the page. The text for the document can be loaded from here so that you don't have to retype it, and the picture for the document is available in "bmp" format.

Here is a hint on getting the picture "bmp" file from your browser:

Your assignment will be graded on how accurately you reproduce the original. You should be sure to match fonts, spacing between lines, style (boldface, italics, etc.), indentation, point size, and margin size. You should replace the obvious fields with your own name, section and teacher and in the footer, have Word insert the current date and time.

One thing that you do NOT have to copy is the way in which words are broken at the end of a line (this is too hard to do). Although the words in your copy of the paragraph must be the same as in the original, there may be more or fewer words on each line. Note, however, that your output should ABSOLUTELY fit on one page!

Don't forget that you should not type the return/enter key at the end of a line--the word processor will automatically move to the next line for you as you continue typing.

Note that you MUST spell check the document, but you may assume that all proper names and that all of the titles of the operettas are spelled correctly!

(Although you may choose to develop your assignment on a Windows machine, please make certain that it opens successfully on Word X for Macintosh.)
