I am making a promo for submissions of recipes. I am making a list; checking it twice. A fellow grammar n_ tells me that the corporate style guide says colons before lists, and it is true. That is what I did until this same person asked me to bold the texts before the lists, essentially making them subheadings in my opinion. Now, because of that, I decided to drop the colons. Am I wrong? Should I have kept them lest I incur wrath?
Have at it, Axis and Allies.
