Good point David. I created a document with nothing but line numbers down the left side and with 12-point font and the default page template in OpenOffice, there are 52 lines per page.

Hi Mike In Word, using the default style sheet with one inch header and footer, using 12 point, there are 45 lines on a page. If you have a laser printer and you use a reasonable quality paper, you may be able to feel the layout on the page.

Not since I lost my sight in fact. Having the need to write one in the next twenty-four hours or so I went searching online for tips. As I remembered, one piece of advice is to centre the letter vertically. In other words not to print a very short letter which does not fill a page of A4 with the text at the top and tons of open space below. Does anybody have any tips for getting this part right? I am using Apache OpenOffice and I am not yet very familiar with it's functions. And I suspect the more advanced among you can probably tell me how many lines of default font will fit vertically on one side of A4. Mike
