TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
I have a colleague, who was an excellent technical writer in a former
life, who has suggested that I change my template to use "nested"
Heading 1 would be perhaps .25 or flush left
Heading 2 would then be .5
Heading 3, .75, and in a lighter color
Heading 4 and 5 (he uses them) would have the same justification as
Heading 3 but smaller font size.
His idea is that we can look at the document as if its contents could be
"collapsed" under the headings.
I like a simpler, straighter approach. I dislike any page that looks
even slightly busy, and I like the Heading style more or less parallel.
Readers would see a symmetrical page.
I'd like your opinions, please.
