step 20

Icon shows copy but the words indicating you should press the copy button is missing. You won't get the 2 different versions of the texts as indicated if you follow the step as it is. Need to add the info to press copy before you will see both in the clipboard.

Note from the Author or Editor:
Please change step 20 to "With the newly formatted text still selected, click the <bold>Copy</bold> button, and then click the <bold>Clipboard</bold> dialog box launcher."

3rd paragraph after heading

Please change the first sentence of the paragraph to "The options on the Mail page are divided into 11 sections." This change shouldn't cause the paragraph to run to three lines, but if (and only if) it does (which would run the page long) you can change the last phrase in the paragraph to "...we'll explore each of these sections."
