Hi everyone-
Thanks for welcoming me- I've gotten a lot of great suggestions.
My question for the list (I apologize if it's already been addressed):
What is the format for a TOC that has THREE PARTS or Sections, many chapters and a preface. The following is my attempt (all suggestions/revisions greatly appreciated!!!). I am really stuck- is this even close to the format I should use? I looked at the Win98 document quide for help.
