Talk:Handbook: House Davion


For the contents, is it true that "Animals" occurs before the "Introduction and Foreward"? (Gack - it hurts to type that). :) Bdevoe 16:56, 25 October 2007 (CDT)

"Animals" is the short story that introduces the book. As you can tell, this is one of the book articles I wrote before I got a handle on the style... ::sigh:: I guess I'm going to have to go back and clean all of those up.... Scaletail 17:14, 25 October 2007 (CDT)
What should I be using as the style for the books? The * and :/:: entries (like MechWarrior, Second Edition)? Just making sure because I also do not relish the thought of going back and redoing stuff. :) Bdevoe 17:19, 25 October 2007 (CDT)
How do the table of contents appear in the book? Are they numbered? Bulleted? --Xoid 00:53, 26 October 2007 (CDT)
For the House Books, the contents are BOLD ALL CAPS for major sections, Bold for subsection headings and Plain Text for the minor sections (sub-subsection). I don't know how the newer stuff looks, so I couldn't answer that. Do I hear a recommendation to make it look more like the actual book contents rather than a consistent style across all of BTech Wiki's book items? Bdevoe 08:02, 26 October 2007 (CDT)
I finally settled on a summary of the important parts of the TOC, no bullets (because it just takes too long) except for oddities in the TOC, and indenting one more space for each sub-heading. Scaletail 20:25, 27 October 2007 (CDT)
Scaletail - could you provide an article that details this style? I can do whatever - it's not that big of an editing job if there's a change (* -> : or vice-versa). I think we should make sure that we provide the style in the template doc as well once we agree to one. I had originally done just :, ::, ::: for the sections, but there's something about either bolding the major headings or marking them with a bullet that seem stylistically pleasing to me.

Lostech: The MechWarrior Equipment Guide and TechManual are the most recent ones that I did. Scaletail 13:34, 28 October 2007 (CDT)
Actually, Combat Equipment is probably the best example, as there is all sorts of craziness in that book. Scaletail 13:46, 28 October 2007 (CDT)
