    OK this is stupid but if I could pull it off... (Word 2002)

    <img src=/S/hello.gif border=0 alt=hello width=25 height=29> Loungers

    OK this is as low as I can sink.

    I have to prepare a talk about the virtues of Volunteering and I thought of a Power Point Presentation with a twist. I could emulate the Late Night with David Letterman's Top Ten List. This could be an effective way to drive the point across and I think many people are familiar with the Top Ten List.

    Now you ask so what is so bad and <img src=/S/crazy.gif border=0 alt=crazy width=15 height=15> about emulating a legend, if you consider Letterman to be one that is, well in my presentation, I would like to have the logo of the Late Night with David Letterman morphed into something that would say "Mid Day with Wassim" <img src=/S/blush.gif border=0 alt=blush width=15 height=15>. This will definitely have an impact.

    I went looking for the logo and I found it here . It is in the Top Left-hand Corner next to the Dropdown.

    Now using MS-Word I found that the font for "with David Letterman" is Brush Script MT font, or this font is close enough. I also discovered that the color of the font is also on the font color pallet, so I am set with this one.

    Also the

    You could probably accomplish this using WordArt. Either use the diagonal A on the Drawing toolbar, or Insert / Object / WordArt. Good luck!

    But how do I make the font look like that logo? I need to have it sort of hallow or filled with black.

    Wow this is really getting together...

    Oops! I'm sorry for being so vague.

    Select the hollow text at the top left of the WordArt dialog, and type your text in all caps, change the font to Times New Roman and Bold it. You should now see the WordArt toolbar. Click on the WordArt Shape button (it says Abc and is near the middle of the toolbar) and select the one 4th row down, 4th column from left. Now you can play with the lines and fills to get it just the way you want it. For that matter, these instructions should work directly in Powerpoint so you needn't do it first in Word.
