As a test to see how well the current release of OpenOffice.org works for tutorials I cobbled this introduction to Glowing objects together. Don't laugh or I'll pummel ya!
Seriously though, the specifics of how to control the Glow attribute on Models eluded me for the longest time because I refused to read the Technical Reference. After I read the reference... all became crystal clear.
So... on with the tutorial.
Unofficial title: "You can lead a horse to water but... can you make him glow?"
