[Tutorial] "In-line" or "run-in" headings

Postby RGB » Mon Dec 10, 2007 11:41 am

In the document presented here, you can find a procedure to mimic a "run-in" or "in-line" heading that looks like this:

1.1 Heading title: Normal text.

and gives a well formatted TOC and cross references.
Inside the document, you can find a complete explanation of the procedure used and a macro that simplify the build of this layout.

PD: Foxcole, there is not a single instance of the word "tricky"! ;)

Shouldn't that be "there is only one instance..." ;-)

What's wrong with "tricky"? Oh, wait. I suppose any editor worth the title would chafe at that word.

Also, negative words in general make some (negative?) people think thay are not going to be able to do something, thus predisposing them to failure.

Hmm. Excellent point.

I always looked at it as being honest: "Hey, don't give up if this doesn't work on the first try." Sort of the textual analogue of Professor Knuth's "Dangerous Bend" signs.

That hardly seems like setting someone up for failure.

Hmmm too. Perhaps the target audience for TeX books is academically accomplished enough that most "quitters" have already quit and never make it that far. I'm quite happy to be told something is going to be tricky - I like a challenge - but I've seen people give up without trying, so I know this is real. I think they were probably told "you're useless... I'll do it!" all the time as kids (which I've sadly seen said by both parents and teatchers.

For information, I've made a macro for that to ease the configuration and customization, see here: [Writer] Work-around for an in-line heading.
