# [NTG-context] sections, subsections, indenting, startnarrower, alignment

I do not understand what you mean. Could you explain?

I stopped trying to use sections because I read somewhere in the
archives that sections cannot be used 'recursively' like this.
I have instead been trying to use definitions.


With regards to other approaches,  I have been trying to use several
different dimensions to solve this problem  but none of them seem to
work as expected inside the head of a definition inside a "narrowed",
such as \localhsize and \makeupwidth, which mangle things in
unexpected ways.

Can anyone tell me however if there is some dimension that corresponds
to the local amount of indentation (made with narrower)?
