I disagree vehemently.  That's far too simple of a system and doesn't 
convey the necessary information that should be in a summary document.

Titles should be either cerise, amaranth or raspberry coloured, 
depending on the bug's severity, and the headers should be blue-gray, 
glaucous or steel blue depending on the day of the week the bug was 
discovered.  Some people might whine that those colors are too close to 
each other, but they can just buy a colorimeter -- that's an operational 
problem anyways.

I can agree to comic sans, as long as it blinks.

Actually, we should probably just set up a committee for report 
styling.  We really need an industry standard for this, and one that 
covers all possible reporting needs for at least the next 20 years.   
Shouldn't take more than a few weeks.

I think I have a TPS report template around here that would be a great 
starting point....   :p
