What you say, Jake, makes sense, and makes me think that, to help readers like Rik, maybe it would be a good idea to put the word chapter, or new chapter, after the chapter number and just above the first sentence of the new chapter, or perhaps as the first words in the first sentence. They could be enclosed in backets to indicate that they've been added and were not in the original. I shall try to remember to do that henceforth, unless for some reason we are told we cn't.
