Actually I like the chapter headings, too.  I hate not knowing when one
chapter ends and another beings ... it's really annoying.  About as bad as
bad formatting on excellent-rated materials.  as in, no paragraphs, all one
ling line of text basically on some books.  Or where there are paragraphs,
it's inconsistent.
