We have lots of new readers coming on board this issue, thanks to Allen Wyatt's 
favorable mention of Neat Net Tricks.  Allen has published his Word Tips for 9 
years and it has stood the test of time, unlike so many newsletters that come 
and go, because it has filled a real need.  Microsoft Word in all its versions 
may be a class act, but it has a steep learning curve.  We need people like 
Allen to help us unravel all of Words' little intricacies, and he does the job 
well.  Trust me on this folks, Word Tips contains just about everything you'd 
want to know, regardless of the version you're using, from Word 6 all the way 
to Word 2007. You can get his newsletter by subscribing free at 
http://word.tips.net/ .  I know I'm not telling anything new to those new NNT 
readers who joined us by way of Allen's kind words, but for the rest of you, 
you really do need to give Word Tips a try.

I still hear from a lot of NNT Standard subscribers who are reluctant to 
subscribe to the Premium version when they can get NNT for free.  Well, you'd 
be surprised what additional stuff you get for just $12 when you help pay 
expensive server costs: neat color and graphics, more tips and tutorials, 
full-length features, no ads, software giveaways, and lots of content you'd 
just have to see to believe.  In a way, Premium is free, too, because if you 
don't like it after you get it, just let me know and I'll send you a 100% 
refund without hassle.  Give it a try, won't you?  It's easy to subscribe at 
http://www.neatnettricks.com/store .
