For more typographic finger wagging please check out Bringhurst's Elements of Typographic Style, it's one of my favorites

To wit:

- To differentiate a header, you can use size, or color, or typeface, or indentation. Pick one.

- Do not arbitrarily use type sizes, there should be a relationship

- Monospace type is not "more professional"

- Likewise there should be a relationship between type size and vertical spacing, do not just use whatever

- Do not mix centered, rag right, and justified type.

- Do not arbitrarily mix typefaces, there should be some relationship. Similar sensibilities? Same Designer?
