I've been so obsessed getting a fall course (XHTML/CSS) ready that I just "plumb" forgot to send out the beginning-of-week notice. Of course, I don't know if anybody actually reads it!

Are you okay? Do you know what's due?

Hello, technical communicators! For this week:

* Read the textbook chapters 7 and 8 and take the quizzes.

* Remember that your instructions are due July 8. And especially remember that you need to use character and paragraph styles in those instructions.

If you use OpenOffice and need help with styles, let me know.

This week:

* Study instructions and styles and take the quiz (on instructions).

Your instructions will be due July 8. Remember to use styles and apply the guidelines you've studied about headings, lists, notices.

If my info on styles does not help you learn, holler. I'll create a video. If you are using OpenOffice, also holler -- I can create a video for that as well.

Good gracious! This semester got start before I was ready. Usually I send out a note on Mondays, outlining what's up for the week.

I have completed reviewing your overviews and will be returning them Thurs.
