Here's my suggestions,

Puttingtext.html
The definition of Tables is missing.

Paragraph.html#spacing

Replace 'If a paragraph is completely at the top...' with, either,
'If a paragraph is right at the top...'
or
'If a paragraph is at the very top...'

Paragraph.html#type

Paragraphs can be set to one of four types; normal, bulleted, drop caps and numbered.

Delete 'Pagestream will flow... new drop cap' at the end of the paragraph starting 'To make a numbered paragraph...'

In the paragraph, 'To make a hanging indent with a bullet or number',

Replace with the following method from the main list.

Set the Left Indent and the first Tab to the indent required for the text (and not the bullet/number). If the bullets/numbers are to be fully left justified, set the First Line to the negative value of the Left Indent (e.g., if the Left Indent and Tab are set at 0.8" then set the First Line to -0.8"). If the numbers/bullets are to be inset, reduce the First Line value by the required indent (e.g. for an indent of 0.2" in the above example set First Line to -0.6"). However, the settings, above, are ineffective in themselves. The indents will only appear when a SPACE followed by a TAB character are inserted before each number/bullet (i.e., place the insert cursor before the number/bullet and type a space followed by a TAB). This will not alter the position of the number/bullet, but it will move the text to the required place.

More to come, later.

Already fixed (and then some).

Done. Actually put "is at the top". You are either at the top or not! My
last English teacher (don't anyone tell her I actually listened to anything
she had to say, much less remembered it) always said to remove the redundant!

Opps. A little copy/paste error!

Ah. The previous method does work, but only for bullets (where the size of
the insert character is the same each time). This method works for numbers,
but of course is so much work it hardly seems worth it. In fact, inserting
an indent here command is faster and easier.

Thanks for the feedback!!
