I'm documenting a connected series of screens that contains list of geographic locations. There are three screens;
Each geographic entity can be assigned a value. e.g.
- North America = 3
- USA = 6
- Ohio = 4
The returned value is the one for the most specific entity:]
- If you are in Ohio: 4
- If you are in the USA but not in Ohio: 6
- If you are in North America but not in USA: 3
For this document, I have an intro, and then three sections (Continent/Country/State)
Would it be better practice to repeat the above derivation of the returned value in each section (3 instances) or just once (in the intro). My concern is that if I put it in the intro, and someone is reading only the State section, they'd miss out on this explanation.
What you do think?
