    Normal doesn't show up at all, or is it grayed out?

    What happens if you choose one of the other available views, does it change? If you try all of the ones available, does Normal ever "reappear"?

    At some point, Microsoft changed the names.

    What was called "Normal" in Word 2004 is now "Draft" in Word 2008.

    "Page Layout" is now "Print Layout." "Online Layout" is now "Web Layout."

    Do you have "Draft" as a choice? (See post from Technologist above.)

    That's because there is no "normal view" as has already been stated. Your possible options include Draft, Web Layout, Outline, Print Layout, Notebook Layout and Publishing Layout.
