What is a "thread?" The same as a post?

Suddenly my page numbers on word docs have become shaded. Can't see the numbers at a glance, so now they're useless. Is this something I can change back to how it's been for years? Or has ms central beamed this into my computer forever, because somebody there thinks it's pretty, function be damned?

A Thread is the 'Question' link in the index
A Post is the individual questions/comments/replies/answers that you see when you click on the Thread in the index

This whole page (and as many pages as are needed to show all the comments related to your question) is/are the Thread, while each of the comments by individuals is a Post.

As to the page numbers - if they are part of the Header and Footer section, then they will look 'greyed-out' when you are in the main document. If you wish them to be more bold, then you can go to the print preview, or Reading pane to see them better - or double click to open the Header and Footer pane (where you could change size and colour - this will effect them all!)

Hope that helps!
