Please note that all important words in the document title and in headings should have an initial

The name(s) of the author(s) must be followed by a footnote asterisk*; this footnote asterisk*

4      Document Headings

               Font Style: Arial Headings Bold

                Font size: 12 Point

               Alignment: Left

1      Heading Level One

1.1    Heading Level Two

1.1.1 Heading Level Three

Heading Level Style: An Arabic numeral followed by a full stop and another
Arabic numeral; the Arabic numerals are inserted manually followed by one
tab space before the heading text.

The use of headings is encouraged. They should be used as signposts to help the reader (and
the writer) identify the different sections of the piece of writing. Headings and their levels
should be used to represent the relative importance of the particular section of the writing.
Short sections are easier to summarise in an informative heading than long sections. Do not
overuse heading levels: most sections are unlikely to require more than three heading levels.

 Single space the lines with 0 point spacing before and after. Leave a line between paragraphs
and do not indent the first word of a new paragraph. Indent quotes of more than three lines in
a block and do not use quotation marks. Do not italicise quotes.
