Greetings! My editing group is having a discussion
about the suitability of section titles phrased as
questions in technical documentation. I was wondering
how the Techwr-l group mind felt about this issue. My
personal view is that question titles are possibly
acceptable in tutorials or beginner-level material
but that for more advanced technical material this
type of phrasing should be avoided.
