Typesetting recipe

  1. 1. Possible formula for thesis text with 7 heading levels: Body Copy = 12pt all type sizes are based off this measure (in increments of 2 points) Line Spacing 24pt = 1.5 spaced (32pt would be double-spaced) all spaces are based on this measure Body copy set with no indents, instead uses 1/2 line space as space between (para space) in this case = 12pt* Headings all use the same typeface (which may differ from body text typeface): Section Head = 18pt (8 pts larger than body copy) usually set all caps, on a page by itself Chapter Head = 16pt (4 pts larger than body copy) Bold, looks best with 3 to 5 para spaces below (so 36pt/60pt) A Head (14pt) = set bold, 2 para spaces above, one para space below (24pt above/12 below)** B Head (14pt) = set bold italic, 2 para spaces above, one para space below (24pt above/12 below) C Head (12pt) = Set bold, 1.5 line space above, one para space below (18pt above/12pt below) D Head (12pt) = Set regular, 1 para space above, 1 para below (12pt above and below) E Head (12pt) = Set italic, 1 para space above, 1 para below (12pt above and below) Footnotes and Page Numbers set in body text @ 8–10pt * Paragraphs above headings should be set with no space below. **When one heading is above another, delete the space below the top heading.
