Is double line spacing in MS Word 2007 the same as normal double spacing?

My English teacher set a requirement of the final draft of our essays having to be double spaced. I have Microsoft Word 2007. I never use it because I usually like to use the old-fashioned paper-and-pen method. When it says "line spacing" is that the same as double spacing? Can anyone help?

    Yes. Normal is single spacing, although Word 2007′s normal paragraph style is set to extra space between paragraphs. That doesn’t affect intra-paragraph spacing. Do this to set double-spacing:1. Select all the text you want double-spaced. (CTRL/A will select the entire document.)2. Right-click in the selection and select Paragraph from the pop-up menu.3. Set the Line Spacing list box to Double.4. Click OK.The text will now be double-spaced, and so will any text you add in that region.Hope that helps.
