4. Applying Character Formatting
Character formatting is formatting that you can apply to individual characters of text. There are other types of formatting too, which I address in other chapters. Paragraph formatting is formatting that applies to entire paragraphs (for example, line spacing), and page formatting is formatting that applies to entire pages (for example, page margins and paper size).
Each character has a certain font (typeface) and size applied to it that govern how the letter appears. You can change the font or the size for a single character or any size block of text, often dramatically changing the look of the document. In this chapter, you learn about applying various types of character formatting to text.
