1-9? Is it just me, or is that severe overkill? The first place that I
worked as a technical writing intern, the Writing Style Guidelines had
been written by a guy with a B.A. in creative writing. They were a lot
of fun to read, and I always remember the description of section headers,
numbered 1-4. After the type style for level four section headers it said,
``Fourth level section heads are for disorganized weenies.''

I've always tried to remember that. Imagine trying to navigate a document
with nine levels of headers. Hoo boy!
