Stylin' a Word Comment Balloon
If you work with Word's Comment feature, you may find that the comment-balloon text is too small to work with, or you may just want some variety. To modify the style, choose Format > Style. From the List pop-up menu, choose All Styles. Select Balloon Text from the Style list. Modify the style as you like, and then click Apply. I like Arial Narrow, 12 point.

We also note the shipping of Virtual PC and a new version of WebCollage.
Virtual PC News -- This week, Connectix plans to ship Virtual PC, its Pentium emulation software (see TidBITS-374). Early reports have been positive, and it seems that - at least for those who have the necessary hardware - Virtual PC has become a real alternative, not only for running the included Windows 95, but also any other Pentium-compatible operating system. According to Connectix, the lower-end version, called Virtual PC Windows 3.11/MS-DOS Version, works on any PowerPC-based Mac running at 100 MHz or faster, with a recommended 24 MB RAM and 200 MB disk spaceShow full article
