Hi Gunnar,

I've been trying to find the best arrangement of section titles over the 
past week. I gave it some more thought this morning, and I'm currently 
thinking along these lines (reflected in the latest versions of the 
articles):

I plan to remove the Background title if the text is short for that 
section, and use an h3 under Question for a title such as "What's this 
about?" otherwise.

The Answer section title encapsulates the shortest answer.

Details section provides further detail for those wanting to understand 
better various aspects of the Answer section.

Additional Information section follows with information that you don't 
need to know in the normal course of events.

Well, the red box draws attention to the note itself, which i felt was 
moderately important. However, I had been thinking of removing the box, 
so I did. We now rely on the separation of the material into an 
Additional Information section, and the lead in text to warn the reader 
what kind of material this is.

Quotations need some additional thought. I won't address them right now.
