After reading another post in this sub-forum, I have a question about basic page formatting (which I thought I had nailed down after all these years, but apparently not). At one time, I thought the first page of each chapter should NOT have a header with author/title/page #. After reading submission guidelines for a particular publisher (who still insists on paper submissions) I got the impression that EVERY page should have one... You know, in case somebody elbows the manuscript off the desk. Which is it? Headers on all pages or skip pages with chapter starts? And as an aside, this sub-forum is called Word Mechanics, but does that mean Microsoft Word Mechanics or does it refer to those icky things you find in dictionaries?
