Re: "Nested" Headings
Ellen Vanrenen wrote:Nested headings originated because, in the days when typewriters roamed the office, there weren't many ways to make one heading different from another. That's no longer true. In fact, we have so many different options now for differentiating headings that nested headings could be said to be obsolete.
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... I like the Heading style more or less parallel.
Readers would see a symmetrical page.
I'd like your opinions, please.
