Hi, Mary!  Oh yes, Julie is definitely right! <Smile>  It's been a while

not read well!  I've read books that recommend the Courier font for creating
documents in Word that read well, but I think Times New Roman and other
common fonts will work okay, too.

like to see them banned from books, at least those I want to scan. <smile>
