Difference between Word Processing and Desktop Publishing.
By Stuart Davidson.
Word processing and desktop publishing are similar in some ways,

Sizes, the colours and bold, italics etc.

easier layout features, and so they are easier to layout a Newspaper
or magazine for example the text may be in more than one place,
when a new Word processor document is opened you see the blank
screen and you type normally without any frame or certain path.
On a Desktop publisher document you would normally select a
template at the beginning and from there begin typing, or you
could start and add a text box to begin typing, you cannot however
begin to type in without any text box.

Tables. Both Publisher and Word have all of those features and
