									Document Design and the Use of Graphics

Parts of the Proposal (in order)
     Letter of Transmittal
     Cover
     Title Page
     Table of Contents
     List of Figures and Tables
     Introduction
     Body of the Report
     Conclusion
     Appendices (including References, resumes,
      descriptions of company's past projects, and
      detailed information like schematics or projected
      utility costs, etc.)

General Considerations
     headings
     page layout
     use of white space
     page numbers
     font style (choice of font and font size, use of italics
      and boldface)
     line spacing
     use of color (for example, to enhance headings,
      figures)
Headings
FIRST-LEVEL HEADINGS
Write first-level headings in capital letters and put
them flush with the left margin of the page. Use
boldface and separate the heading from the text
above and below with one blank line.
Second-level Headings
Place second-level headings flush with the left margin
using upper and lower-case letters. Use boldface and
separate the heading from the text above and below
with one blank line.
Third-level headings. Place third-level headings on
the same line of text they precede. Capitalize only
the first word, use boldface, and use a period at the
end of the heading.


Pagination
     All pages in the proposal are numbered;
      however, the numbers on all pages are not
      displayed.
     Place an arabic numeral, centered on the bottom
      of the pages that have a displayed page number.
     The pages with displayed numbers are all pages
      except the the title page and first page of the
      introduction.
Graphics
    Number all tables and figures consecutively (Table
     1, Figure 1)
    Give each table and figure a descriptive title.
    Refer to each table and figure in the text and
     explain key points. (Use numbers: Figure 1 shows.
     . .)
    Position graphics just after the first point of
     reference in the manuscript.
    Combine graphics with text rather than appending
     them to the end of the report.
    Use labels to identify elements of the graphic.
