to contextualize my post:

Text Type is type that is designed to be read in large quantities at small sizes.…For example, the bulk of the text in any newspaper, magazine, or book is Text Type.… It's also called Body Type or Body Copy.…Display type,

on the other hand, is type that 14 point or larger, and it's typically used… in small quantities for emphasis and effect.…

Since subhead, lead and nutshell paragraph are placed between the head of the article -display type- and the content of the article -text types- I m wondering at which category they typically belong. I know the factual answer could be something like -it depends of the length of your section. That said I assume their is some general practice about that part of articles, and it would be cool to have some general guidance about this point.

  • Well, can you please explain your issue better? Can you add a sketch what you mean with "subhead" etc.? Which software do you use for creating documents? Please be more specific ... – Mensch Jun 30 '19 at 16:03
