Here are a bunch resources related to MS Word. I hope these are helpful and
not too overwhelming. Spending a bit of time up front to set up templates
and styles (and religiously using styles instead of toolbar buttons for
formatting) will save you loads of headaches in the long run. See the MVPs
site and the e-book links for details on templates.
