This doesn't work for me.

So far, this doesn't solve my problem.  Should I then use description lists
for all outline entries?

I don't understand why  I  do not see "section" or "subsection", and the
sections often come out with bare stars.  Is this also because the number of
levels has been exceeded?

Thank you again.  This is the first limitation of LaTeX I have not seen an
immediate way around.
