Word 2007 and the "big gaps"

Normally I am Mr Enthusiasm for new Microsoft apps (a change is as good as a rest!) but Office 2007 has to be a hard one to recommend. Anyway, my Chief User at home (or "wife") has finally broken and complained that she would like Word except why are all her paragraphs suddenly miles from each other?

It must be said that on an environmental level the new 10pt gap between paragraphs is questionable at least. Anyway, help is at hand! To get rid of the gaps, open Word 2007 and...

1. Click the Home tab.
2. Click Change Styles in the Styles group, point to Style Set, and then click Word 2003.
3. To set the style set as the default style set in Word 2007, click Change Styles in the Styles group, and then click Set as Default.
