But Sophia IS probably using LaTeX2e - that's why she got that
message!

Sophia:

Most of the difference is in the first line of the file.  Start it this way:

\documentclass[12pt]{article}

Then you will be using LaTeX2e.  What's happening now is (I guess) you
have the old LaTeX header and so LaTeX2e is going back to the old 2.09
mode.
