Yes, thanks. I agree that this is pretty straightforward.

Carrie, Thanks so much for the specific guidelines these are very helpful. I'm glad to see what I've been doing is right per what the engineers say.
Thanks,

Engineering told me that as far as marking the text of a book for navigation:
1. they ignore any text under 14 points for markup
2. they can handle a maximum of 4 levels of markup
3. the difference between levels must be at least 2 points

So the minimum levels would be 14, 16, 18 and 20. If you want to use a difference of 4 instead, that's fine.

Please make the title of the book the largest point. If there are parts, they should be lower, and then the chapters inside the parts lower. If you want to mark sections inside chapters, they should be at the lowest level.

Seems pretty straightforward to me!

HTH, Carrie

If both part 1 and chapter 1 are in the table of contents I use the 4 point differences. If there are section headings within the chapter or story that are not in the table of contents, I give them a two point difference. Though the book I just completed proofing of Vietnam War interviews had three levels of headings in the table of contents but I only used 4 points for the first two levels and 2 points for the lowest level so it was 18, 14, 12, and 10 point for the main text. The book is Patriots: The Vietnam War Remembered from All Directions by Christian Appy (my title may not be exactly right, but search on Patriots should bring it up) if anyone wants to check how it turned out.
