body text

Four important considerations

Please note:
BODY TEXT
is the most com­mon
ele­ment of a doc­u­ment.
There­fore, how the body
text looks will have the
most notice­able effect
on the appear­ance
of the doc­u­ment.
Con­se­quently,
you should
set up the
body text
FIRST.

Start with
font, point size,
line spacing, and
line length, because
those four deci­sions will
largely deter­mine how
the body text will
look. OK?
