Subject: RE: Creating lists of bulleted items in Microsoft Word 2003

there must be a formal way to create an outline of course.  What I do is

Set Roman number I as the first item.  Tab once and fill in the text, then
enter.

For the a., b., and so on, I tab once and word fills  in a., b., and c.
If I don't want a., b., and so on but want to get back to the roman numbers,
shift-tab will do it.
remember to change level you have to press enter prior to the change and
then tab.
