What Students See: Word Processing and the Perception of Visual Design.
Markel, Mike
Computers and Composition, v15 n3 p373-86 1998
Finds that college students were aware of, and understood the function of, some common design elements (boldface, italics, numbered lists) but were much less aware of other design elements (headers, indentation, and line spacing); and that perceptions of design elements correlated strongly with self-reported experience using word processing packages and with attitudes concerning document design.
