Assignment #1

Using Microsoft Word, recreate the attached one-page document. The text for the document can be loaded from here, and the picture for the document is available below in "gif" format, and will have to be converted before use. It is also available on the ACFSE server in several file formats:

Your assignment will be graded on how accurately you reproduce the original. You should be sure to match fonts, spacing between lines, style (boldface, italics, etc.), indentation, point size, and margin size. You should replace the test "MYNAME" with your own name, and in the footer, have Word insert the current date and time.

One thing that you do NOT have to copy is the way in which words are broken at the end of a line (this is too hard to do). Although the words in your copy of the paragraph must be the same as in the original, there may be more or fewer words on each line. Note, however, that your output should ABSOLUTELY fit on one page!

Don't forget that you should not type the return/enter key at the end of a line--the word processor will automatically move to the next line for you as you continue typing.

As an added benefit, we have provided a TEXT version of the document on the ACFSE server in our course folder. Thus, you won't actually have to retype the document, just format it. You should, however, spell check the document. (Assume that all proper names and that all of the titles of the shows are spelled correctly!)
