objects for the box and the type. Text boxes should
have a minimum clearance of one x-height below the
lowest descender of any character on the bottom
line of the text box (otherwise it may drop out
altogether when output). This will usually place
the bottom of the text box below the bottom boundary
of the background color.
105. In the Color palette, click White for the type
color. There are three buttons...the left one is the
box frame color, the center one is for the type color
and the right one is for the box fill color. Make sure
the center button is selected.
||You also can select the type color
from the "Style" menu...accessed by clicking
Style > Color.
106. Type the text "55" in the text box. This
is dummy text for position only. It will appear in the
document when the master page is applied. Then you will
edit this text in the document (not the master).

tab and choose "Cap Height" as the First Baseline
