Thanks in advance for your answers,

You can't in Word 97, because font color is limited to the 16-color palette, none of which are the right color, I suspect. The only light blue is actually cyan (or turquoise, as Word calls it). I don't know about later versions of Word -- they may have lifted that silly limitation.

I suspect any sufficiently light blue would work, though of course any non-repro color will reproduce just fine on a color copier.
