It's a good idea to avoid surprises caused by the addition of space
below/above consecutive paragraphs.
I'm not sure if you know that FrameMaker is nearly unique* in its
method of inter-paragraph space settings. It's about "size matters."
FrameMaker honors the larger of space below and space above to set the
space between them. Almost all other text-creation tools combine the
spaces. The additive method requires more thought about designing for
many possible combinations of consecutive paragraph formats.
*I believe that Ventura Publisher offers the option to work either
larger one wins, or additive.
