Can you give me a reason for starting with ===noun===, ===pronunciation=== but not ==noun==, ==pronunciation== etc ? I think that if we use == == for the headings, it will make the readers focus on them, because they (the headings) will be darker. Webkid 18:16, 20 Jan 2004 (UTC)

When a word exists in multiple languages (or only in a non-English language), it's preferable to have the language headings one level above the part of speech, so the language goes at level 2, and the part of speech at level 3. In words that are English only, the levels could be moved up by one, but then those words would look different. I suppose it depends on how much you like consistency.
For some reason nobody ever uses level 1 headings, probably because they're too big. -- Ortonmc 18:33, 20 Jan 2004 (UTC)
Yes, I was talking about the English-only entries. I only can't understand what you mean by different. Webkid 19:44, 20 Jan 2004 (UTC)
I meant there would be some words where the part of speech headings were big and dark, and other words where they were not. "Inconsistent" would have been a better word. -- Ortonmc 20:18, 20 Jan 2004 (UTC)
