1) How many ugly, automated, wrecking
checkboxes exist in Word 2000 to undo
hours worth of work?
--- Autotext/autocorrect is still a killer - watch out for ya curlies and so
on. Also check your tools/ options settings as well. BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY -
DO NOT ENABLE FAST SAVES OR BACKGROUND SAVES!!!!
2) Is there a chart somewhere that states

formatting selections) are for a corporate
--- Policies aren't annotated so don't require working white space - use
either what is Aesthetically pleasing, or (like me) reduce paper usage by
maximising text area.
3) Is it advisable to combine a style sheet template
with a template containing design elements (logo,
header, footer, etc.) or should they be kept separate?
(I suspect I know the answer to this one.

traverse the network each time a doco is opened or closed. I am thinking of
ripping out the stuff that only the tech writers use, and putting it in a
subordinately called template.
