Outline tips:

Roman numerals should be arranged so that the periods align.


Each letter in the second-level divisions is capitalized and followed by a period
Arabic numbers in third-level divisions are followed by periods.
The first word in headings and subheadings begins with an uppercase letter, and the
other words (except proper nouns and adjectives) begin with lowercase letters.

Omit periods after headings and subheadings
