Ms. Arons also helps gather and process extensive lists of information that appear in MBW Reports and other Business sections.
Judy Yao, a copy editor, lays out most of the pages that appear in our sections, working with the various editors to determine how and where they want stories displayed, what our artwork choices are and the like. Ms. Yao's layout sheets are then taken to the copy desk, where, as noted above, they provide copy editors with information about how much space each story can occupy, what its headline size should be and other special typography needs.
Mike Levene (332-6006) is head of the business copy desk, and five other copy editors work extensively on business-desk content: David Allerhand, Jerry Bayne, Ted Chan, Elisabeth Hoffman, Kasey Jones and Karen Warmkessel.
