Re: Font Question - Need bold white w/black outline

Hi John:

That works wonderfully! Word Art would have been the last place I would
haved looked. Having worked with PowerPoint sporadically since the 90's, I
have come to equate Word Art with limited selections of very dated blockish
styles. This came out very clean, crisp and perfect for my presentation.
Many thanks for your help!
