Florence and Gerard,
Could you perhaps not insist on using the non-existent term "sub-chapters"?
If we're going to rehash the ages old discussion on US chapters and "what
does a chapter do" and "Why does the US need this" and other such dead
horses, it'd be nice if we all used the proper terminology. Thanks.
