Microsoft Word 2000 - Fancy Underlining

Why underline your text with a simple black line when you can do much more?

In Microsoft Word 2000, Select the text to be underlined then right-click and select "Font".

Now, underneath the "Underline Style" pulldown, select your desired underline type. You can use a solid line, dashes, waves, and more. Plus, underneath "Underline Color" you can make underlines in a different color than the normal text color. Check out the "Preview" section to see how your underline will look.

When you are done, press "OK" to close the dialog box.
