Thanks Peter for the detailed explanation. :) That helps me understand the
baseline approach to text spacing.

I'm curious why you put headings in different layers, just to organize them,
or is it easier to work with that way?

I guess this highlights the different kinds of formatting needed for
different types of publications, because I usually have multiple sections
with subheadings that need to flow together as one passage--as opposed to a
single headline at the beginning of a newspaper article. That means I don't
really have the option to put headers in separate frames anyway, whether I
wanted to or not.

What do you mean here by "close it up" exactly? Do you mean between the text
and the heading (i.e., shift up the entire body text)?

Thanks again,
