I've been writing in TeX for a few years, but this is my first time writing a long document.

I have always used \title for the main title, and \section for smaller titles. It seems that it is only possible to use \title once. I therefore wonder what the standard procedure is for a title that is between the main title and a section. In particular, what should I use for titles of chapters?


I think (although you don't say) that you are using LaTeX with thearticle class. Switch to report or book class and then you will have a \chapter command.
