    Default Wow. Try this

    Open Microsoft Word and type =rand(200,99) anywhere in the document and press enter. ( This will work on version 2000, 2003 and XP. ).

    Some people are like Slinkies. They're really good for nothing. But they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

    The number of pages you get depends on your page size, margins, font type and font size... not that the explanation helps understand why anyone would bother !!!

    But it is Very Foxy

    Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.
