Another CBS Document Experiment
I opened Apple’s TextEdit word processor, and with default settings typed in the same text from the August 18, 1973 memo as found at CBS News, with the same Times New Roman font at the same 12 point size.
Here’s the Apple TextEdit version, which is clearly very different in layout from the CBS News version:
And for reference, here’s the CBS News “original:”
And my Microsoft Word document, matching the CBS “original” exactly:
For a real eye-opener, here’s what happens when we overlay the Apple TextEdit version on the CBS News “original:”
And compare that to my MS Word document overlaid on the CBS News “original,” in an animated GIF alternating between the two:
Again, please note: the superscript “th” in “187th” is lower in relation to the 7 character in my Word document, because it’s a screenshot. In the printed version the superscript matches the position of the CBS News “original.”
