"Center the letter on the page vertically and horizontally."
For some reason, very few people do this. Mostly, it's because they don't know how to do it in MS Word, but that's no excuse. Neither is the excuse that no one else does it. This is the proper way, and one of the most important steps in formatting a professional looking letter. And, this is one of very few reference books that includes that little tidbit. To continue with the instruction:
"Although one-inch margins are the default standard in many wordprocessing programs, it is more important to estanblish a 'picture frame' of blank space surrounding the page of text. When you use organizational letterhead stationary, consider the bottom of the letterhead as the top edge of the paper. The left and right margins should be approximately equal; to give fuller appearance to very short letters, increase both margins to about an inch and a half. Use your computer's 'full-page' or 'print preview' feature to help you achieve proportion."
What can be simpler than that? (Going to a additional pages is a pain, as the vertical alignment should change to the top, but small price for looking like you know what you're doing.) If you know someone who writes for business or pleasure, they will appreciate this book.
