Do not judge a thesis by its format. When I wrote my thesis ('92 at ISU),
the thesis department totally controlled the format (margins, justification,
font use, inter-line and -paragraph spacing, etc.). They wanted the thesis

The dissertation department was worse. Try writing a multi-media
dissertation. YOW!
