1. Introduction

This section focuses on some of the main characteristics of documents such as:

  • characters
  • paragraphs
  • sections
  • frames
  • headers
  • footers
  • footnotes
  • pages

Whilst these seem incredibly easy things to understand, their very simplicity can make it difficult to write about them in an exam question.

Over the next few pages, we will be taking a look at the characteristics above.

Make sure that you take notes about them and that you would be able to describe the purpose and function of each.
