    When you have a Roman numeral I like this with separate blocked paragraphs, how do you transcribe it.
    I. Discussion of Final Rule

    The federal Independent Living (IL) program seeks to empower and enable individuals with disabilities, particularly individuals with significant disabilities, to exercise full choice and control over their lives and to live independently in their communities. For over 40 years, these aims have been advanced through two federal programs: Independent Living Services (ILS) and Centers for Independent Living (referred to as CILs or Centers). The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) transferred these Independent Living programs to the Administration for Community Living (ACL) and created a new Independent Living Administration within the agency, adding section 701A of the Rehabilitation Act, 29 U.S.C. 796-1. As part of the transfer, the Administrator of ACL (Administrator) drafted a Notice of Proposed Rule Making (NPRM) that was published on November 16, 2015,toimplement changes made by WIOA in accordance with Section 12 of the Rehabilitation Act, as amended, 29 U.S.C. 709(e), and section 491(f) of WIOA, 42 U.S.C. 3515e(f).

    ACL received over 100 comments to the NPRM, most of them expressing their support for the provisions in the proposed rule. ACL has read and considered each of the comments received. We respond here to the most-commonly-received comments and to those that we believe require further discussion. We have indicated changes made between the NPRM and final rule.


    Is this part of an outline (with subentries, etc)? If so, there are specific rules for that.

    Based on what is shown here, the item labeled I. could be done as heading (centered or cell 5) with regular paragraphs below it.

    I ran into these later on. Outline with subs and a page change indicator just before the paragraphs.
    So what would be the proper way. Thanks

    Now you are into an outline.

    According to 8.9.1 you should used the nested list format.  Roman Numerals would be at the margin, A, B would be in 3.  All runovers in 5.  New paragraphs would begin in cell 7.  So you would have
