Word versus Notebook

This assignment illustrates a pure ASCII text file, as opposed to a word processing file.

Type and save a paragraph using Word and type and save the same paragraph using Notepad.

What were the sizes of the two files after you stored them?

Open the Word file using Notepad -- what do you see?

How do you explain the difference between the Notepad version and the Word version?
