    Full Stop

    Hello!

    Is it correct to put a full stop at the end of the headlines in a table of contents or at the end of subtitles throughout a book?

    Thank you

    Normally, we would not put a full stop at the end of those sentences, but you will see it sometimes.

    No, it is wrong to do this. You only need to open a few books to see that this is not done.
