Hi Melissa et al. This is a good question. Original message:
Ann, If chapter headings are in 14, how can you mark sections within chapters to navigate to them? For instance, if you are working with a recipe book, and need to be able to navigate to each recipe. A recipe book might have a part on main dishes, within that, there might be chapters for meat, poultry, seafood, etc, then you have the individual recipes within each chapter. Using 16 point for the part, and 14 for the chapter, you don't have anything left for the individual recipes.
That's why I like to use Word for editing. All the header styles are predefined, and there are six of them. Header 1 is the largest size and boldest text and is for the biggest sections. Style 6 is for the smallest changes above plain text. You can do this manually by determining how many different sections there are in a book and making the text conform accordingly. You may just have chapters. That would be just header 1. You may have sections, chapters and sub sections in which case you'd need three different header styles. It's like writing an outline, in fact it is writing an outline because you are defining the various sections and levels of your book, which is, after all, the strength of the DAISY mark-up language.

Actually, Part I is supposed to be in header style 1 and Chapter 1 is in header style 2. That means the parts are the biggest sections and the chapters are the next section down. It is important to mark these headers properly so that the DAISY converter can do its work. Header style 2 should be in fourteen point not sixteen. In Word, it is very easy to accomplish this by selecting the line and then adding the header style with alt-ctrl-1 through alt-ctrl-6.
