I keep reading that chapter headings should start around 1/3 of the way down a new page, with space before and after. A new page I can understand, but why 1/3 of the way down? Is it for the reader to make overall notes about the chapter once they've read it? Is it still relevant in a digital age - most formatting advice articles are several years old when posting paper manuscripts was more common? It looks so ugly to me having the random space, and if I understand why I should be doing it I can get over my resistance.
