That said, I think she can use a snake if all the book publishers do. =)

As to how that should be done, what I'd do if I were you Beth is to take a
snapshot of the screen (with the Control-PrintScreen key combination), go
to a bitmap editor (you should have one called "Paint" under your
Accessories menu under Program under the Start menu), and paste the new
picture into it -- then use the rectangle selection tool to isolate the
part of the screen you want to use, copy that, and paste that into word.
Should work.
