Plain English document design
A plain English document must look simple as well as be written in simple language. To produce this effect, the designer should: leave adequate white space; use a fairly expanded, not too delicate typeface with a large x-height; use bold and italic type faces judiciously; provide for adequate leading; balance the conflicting needs of those who read and fill in the document, and those who process it.
