What text formatting options do I have?

Skidmore College has a Graphic Standards Manual to govern the use of the trademark graphics, colors and font styles on college webpages.  Using a consistent color scheme across CMS websites helps to reinforce the Graphic Standards already in place, and and give a sense of unity to our Web sites and other forms of communication. These standards have been created to assist offices and departments campuswide in strengthening the Skidmore message and graphic identity.

You access text formatting options through drop-down menus in the text editor, as illustrated below.
