If it was me, I'd use that as the "chapter name" tag and have that
start each of the chapters/files in the book. In the paragraph
designer:

* On the Basic Tab, set alignment to Center.
* Pick a big point size for the letter.
* On the Pagination tab, activate the checkbox to "run across all columns."
* On the Numbering tab, set to Autonumber with the <$chapnum> variable.
* On the Advanced tab, set Frame Below to Single Line. Or Double Line
if you're in a risk-taking mood.

In your book file, highlight all the files and set Chapter Numbering
to upper case letters.

Cheers,
Art
