...Tell me more. I can understand *how* this works (a lighter type for 'secondary' elements), but can't immediately think of situations *when* I could exploit it. The only one I can imagine is where I'm diagramming an interface, and some of my labels relate to specific tasks, others just general information.
Are there other sorts of common situations where you've found it useful?
