True.  I failed to indicate the source of my printout.

Usually the PostScript output is used to create PDFs.  It has been a really
long time since I took a LaTeX file and created anything from it.  I thought
the DVI was used to create the PS file.  If it is also used to create the
HTML and TXT files, i.e., the source for creation of those files, then it
is OK.  If only used to create the PS file, then it might be suspect.

Someone on this list that knows LaTeX extremely well, might be able to figure
what needs to change in the TEX file so those level headings aren't lost.

I prefer to print from PDF because one gets all the formatting that way :-)
