I don't understand the strategy for which words to mark in bold in the
technique list labels. Especially the last one, where we highlight "not

While we are sorting the technique lists, should we also sort the Failures
so that they are in numeric order?

The technique list paragraphs aren't indented in the Quick Ref, which is a
little confusing. It almost makes the SItuations look like subcases of the
lists, instead of vice versa. Is there a way to control that formatting?

I tried playing around with different Quickref configurations, and I think
things work ok. Fortunately, it isn't possible to turn off general
techniques, so the only list that can ever be empty is the last one
(Techniques to indicate that text alternatives are *not required* for
Situation F). That may be a little confusing, but I would only expect it to
be used by experts.
