Just finished doing a Training Program (Windows database software) on
PowerPoint and, because of my employer's worldwide business, I chose the
light green wizard with a near transparent world map barely showing
through on the slides.

Type is 28 pt white Roman Times with all menu items in black Arial.

Received accolades, so I have to recommend that right now.

Tomorrow? who knows?

Everyone thought my last one was great too.

Too bad that (according to many subscribers) Tech Writing doesn't
require creativity.
