I'm currently considering to use a in line (in text) listing style, such as:
'Some things are quite good. (i) Thing A can do this and that, which is awesome because of this and that. (ii) Thing B can do, ... . (iv) Some people also say that this and that, therefore thing Z is great.'
I've got more important points already highlighted through bullets, therefore I don't want to use bullets again for this minor information, plus I want to logically link the single points through sentences, but still provide an easy way to pick out the key words quickly.
First question: I've seen this style in quite a few papers. Is it considered to be a "good" style, or are there any downsides to this approach? Should I not use this style? Does the reader get confused by this?
Second question: Shall the brackets and latin number be bold, only the number, or nothing?
Third question: Should I place the enumeration element right infront of the keyword, or at the beginning of the sentence containing the keyword?
