Formatting refers to the look of the document and the way it is structured using a hierarchy of headings, chapters, or pages.


A well formatted document or website

• is easy to read

• is attractive

• uses a consistent visual style


Formatting involves

• document layout (page size, margins, page numbering, headers, footers)

• typesetting (font, type size and style)

• creating and applying style sheets (such as for headings, text, tables and references)

• placing illustrative material


I can format your material according to design specifications, or create a format for you with style sheets.

If you have already formatted your material I can check the formatting is appropriate and consistent.
