A technique that is often used when printing large documents is to print the section title at the top or bottom of each page of that section. For example, all pages in the second chapter may have the text "Chapter 2" printed at the top of each page. The IBM Display Write 36 (DW/36) text editor provides this function to the user through an em (Image Omitted) bedded instruction (similar to the control words that are used in the Document Composition Facility). The instruction is called "an outline heading text instruction" and is denoted as *HTn (where n is a number from zero to six). The DW/36 embedded instructions are used to define places in a document where special processing is to occur when a document is printed. The outline heading instruction specifies (*Hn) that the current line of text is a section heading.
