> What is the best solution to create side headings in Word

I use frames for Word sideheads. As far as I know, frames are
the only way to define sideheads with styles. Tables and text
boxes are problematic for structured documents.

Just set the left margins for the whole document where you want
the body text to line up. Then define your "sidehead" style as a
frame with a negative indent.

This works in Word 2000; I haven't tried XP. My only reservation
about frames is I suspect they may be deprecated in future
versions. But in the meantime, it's nice to be able to just
create a "sidehead" style without having to chase each paragraph
around with a table or text box.

Hope that helps,
Mike O.
