Many thanks for all your posts. You have provided me
with a lot of good ideas.
And for those of you who questioned why I did not ask
him why he wanted this format. I heard this
second-hand only, and my immediate thought was to rush
over there and ask him. But then I stopped, because I
could sense that I was really feeling agitated about
it. So I thought I would run it by you guys before I
rushed over there angrily.
I am almost positive that his reasoning is going to be
that he wants the document to be shorter, but my
experience has shown that it does not save a lot fof
space. I tried this once - just to see. The document
eneded up being the same length, because with hanging
heads, you have to space down. (My gutter is rather
narrow on my templatre.) Also, I am willing to bet
that he he has no familiarity with this way of writing
a document and it jsut looks odd to him. I don't
believe it is for any special formatting concerns.
(BTW - yes, all our clients and in-house personnel
love the doc style).
But you guys have given me much food for thought. Now
I will go over and talk to him about it.
I will keep you posted.
