    - download GetItWrite V2.0 file. This program is used to rename the file. Use CONVERT V2.5 to convert back to GEOS format.
    - download Times Roman font. This file needs to be converted back to GEOS format. It contains an 11 point size which the original BSW LW Roma font does not. You will need this font to properly format the Dummy3 article.

    BONUS! - In article #3 I suggested that you make a Style Sheet to keep track of which fonts you are using for what part of the document. In article #7 I used a graphic and a table of values to make it easier to describe headline and text regions. I have put all of this info into a single page geoWrite file to make it easier to have it handy while you are working on the Tutorial. This is also a good example to use when you need to make up your own reference sheet for future projects. Download the GeoPublish Tutorial Style Sheet now. Make sure to have the LW fonts on the disk with the file when you print it out to get the proper formatting.
