Color the page white
Dark text on a white background is the easiest to read. Im going to tell you how to change the background to white, but feel free to make it any color you like.
From the Window menu, choose Show Color Panel. Youll get the little panel full of color dots, as shown below. You can drag this panel around by its title bar like any window, and close it by clicking in its close box.
Position the pointer directly on one of the color spots, press on the spot, and drag it across the page over to that tiny page icon. Drop the color spot directly on the page icon and voilà, your page is a new color.
Type some text on your page
If youve used a word processor, youll feel right at home on this Web page. Although I provide you with suggestions of what to type, of course you can type anything you want!
In the top-left corner of the page you see the insertion point flashing, which is your visual clue that when you type, the text will start here. So start typing. Follow the text shown on the next page. Hit a Return at the end of each paragraph (not at the end of each line in the long paragraph!).
When youve typed all that in, Ill tell you how to format it.
