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"
headings:
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.
