[bksvol-discuss] Re: Chapter Headings

Hi, Regina, I don't change the font, i.e., if the book is written in
Times New Roman, I'm going to leave the font the same; however, when it
comes to chapters, I do go into the format menu after selecting what I
wish to highlight then open a combo box after entering the font page
menu. I want the chapters to be put in bold type and I also want them to
appear larger, so I opt for chapter headings to be in 16 pt. type. In
this case "Chapter Seven", "7", or "seven" will be put in 16 pt. type.
if there is a title to the chapter, e.g., "Chapter seven In Which Our
Hero Finds Himself Up the Creek" or "Losing Proposition", then I'd put
these words in 14 pt. type to distinguish them from the average ordinary
text. I think I might put them in bolder type as well. This has
absolutely nothing to do with what you or I might read in Braille, but
it does look visually interesting or it might. Sighted folks on this
list might have to answer as to the aesthetics of this. Regards, Kim
Friedman.

Hi Everyone:

I was reviewing the proof reading manual and it says that it's not
necessary to protect chapter headings with page numbers? Is this
correct? Just want to be clear. 
In the past I put astarecks if the page number was at the bottom. 

Thanks.

Thinking back, I believe you are right Mike. And your solution is the
best.

If you will send me the name of a book you've done this with, I'll check
it 
out and let you know the results.

Bob
