Formatting abilities

I have divided the information on formatting abilities into two tables purely to make the information easier to read on smaller screen-sizes. Below these, the final table lists spellchecking (and related) capabilities.

Note that — in the TW/EW family — “chapters”, “sections”, “tables”, “lists”, etc, are all structures. These can be ‘nested’ and set to either inherit properties from the structures in which they're embedded or have specific properties/styles of their own. This makes global/local reformatting particularly powerful and flexible.
