Beverly Parks <bparks -at- HUACHUCA-EMH1 -dot- ARMY -dot- MIL> asks if a section for questions
should have each one written as a question.

** QUESTION: Would declarative sentences be OK?

ANSWER: Maybe so, if you reduce "QUESTION" to "Q", and "ANSWER" to "A".

Q: Ah yes, I've seen that in printed interviews.

A: And you see it in transcripts of press conferences too.

Q: Does the first pair need to be fully spelled out as
"QUESTION" and "ANSWER"?

A: In my opinion, the initial spelling-out is not absolutely
necessary but nice if possible.

Q: But then at least the sentence that gets the full word "QUESTION"
labelling it should be a real question.

A: I think so. And the one that gets the full word "ANSWER" should
be a real answer...
