Kevin asks if he should use the period (or dot, or whatever) before file
extensions in text.

Lori responds:


I always use the dot. It helps to make the extension stand out from regular
text. If the extension is part of a computer filename, you might try a font
like Courier to show that it's a filename.

For example:

<text font>Save the graphic in <filename font>.PCX <text font>format.
