1 An example section
I've read that
\paragraph is a sectioning command one level lower than
\subsubsection. However, it seems to work a little differently. For one thing, it is unnumbered (unless modified).
An example paragraph Furthermore, it seems to "stick" to the text of the paragraph of text following it, i.e. it doesn't appear on a line of its own, like other sectioning commands do. Instead, its title just appears as the first few words of the paragraph in question.
This leads me to wonder: is
\paragraph intended to be used simply as an unnumbered version of the nonexistent
\subsubsubsection, i.e. so that it might be used to delimit multi-paragraph blocks of text, or is its significance limited only to the paragraph in which it is included (as suggested by the fact that it "sticks" to it)?
This question is formatted as an example of the first kind of usage of
\paragraph mentioned above (as an unnumbered
\subsubsubsection), i.e. the paragraph beginning with "This leads me to wonder" above, as well as this one, is here meant to be included under the paragraph "An example paragraph". Is this the correct usage?
