comment How can I lock down Microsoft Word to protect our branding?
there's a certain irony to that, don't you think? :) The kbsc improvement surely qualifies for a "least discoverable feature" award... it certainly wasn't mentioned in the hype. It's the one thing that would have sold me on the new UI.

comment How can I lock down Microsoft Word to protect our branding?
That's useful to know. I hated the "Ribbon" (anything that gets in my way or slows me down gets short shrift) so much that I stuck with 2003. Turns out all of my tech savvy clients did the same, so it's the technology-challenged folks who have 2007 and 2010. Contrary to Microsoft's off-the-wall UX research, the new versions are much harder for such people to work with, because the UI style is so different from all other applications.

comment Is there no such thing as OCR-B font in bold?
It's not just its roots, its entire purpose is to be optically readable (but more attractive and less machine-like than OCR-A). By definition, a slanted or bold variant would not be OCR.

And the policy has to have teeth. That's a matter for negotiation with the highest level of the bureaucracy that you have access to, but it has to come from the top, or as near to the top as you can get.

comment What's the difference between opentype vs. truetype
Add the very important benefit that OpenType fonts are completely platform-agnostic. Before OpenType, we'd run into endless problems with cross-platform incompatibilities, usually at the worst possible time. In my own work, if an font isn't OpenType I either a) don't use it at all, or b) outline the text before it goes to prepress.

comment Beginner Web Designer
First off, full marks for recognizing that knowing how to use a design tool does not make you a designer. That instantly puts you in an enlightened minority. That said, Farray is correct; there are already good answers to this question. The one he cites is great. See also graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/questions/2167/…, which will help.

At the bottom of the dialog, there is a dropdown to select the alpha channel setting. Change it from None to Unmatted.

Your answer was correct, so I didn't want to add one of my own, but I have expanded yours a little to make it more generally useful.
