Hi Ahmad,
Sorry for the late reply.
So, my comments:
I'd still like Headings to be Sans and the text Serif, or vice versa. I'm
not alone in this idea -- using a different font for headings and for body
text is a common practice. There are websites dedicated to font pairings,
and the use of these pairings is why OOXML themes let the user choose a
font for headings and a different font for body text.
I'm a bit concerned about centering table contents. Centered text is
generally harder to read and can get in the way if you have to compare
data. I'd rather they were left-aligned (right-aligned for RTL languages,
of course).
In general, I'd like styles to be relative, not hard-coded. That means that
the Heading style should hold the font family, for example, not each
individual heading. I now also realize why the LibreOffice styles used
decimal point values -- the headings were saved as percentages, which, come
to think of it, isn't a bad idea.
I'm still not entirely happy with the headings. As I said earlier, I'd
prefer if superior headings weren't lighter than subordinate headings (i.e.
Heading 3 shouldn't be lighter than Heading 5) and I'd like there to be
some differentiation between heading 7-10.
I'd also like the subtitle to be lighter.

Here's something more along the lines of what I'd imagine: . (There are a few more
elements used in the document, remove them for a direct comparison.)

Please see the new templates at:

I've made two versions Serif and Sans-Serif, please have a look at them
and give me your feedback.

The files are documents to show how things will look, but not the original

1. Headings set to whole numbers.
2. Different heading weights, and no light colours for headings
3. Table items centred

Note: There is no consideration for headings lower than 6 ( I believe we
should remove them )
