[Tex/LaTex] Sections indexed with numbers, subsections with letters


Is it possible to set the environment in such a way that sections are indexed with numbers, and subsections with letters?

I mean, I'd like to have the following result:

1 First section

1.a First subsection

1.b Second subsection

2 Second section

2.a First subsection

2.b Second subsection

Best Answer

Redefine \thesubsection as \thesection.\alph{subsection}. (\alph replaces the default \arabic; you could also choose, e.g., \Alph, \roman, and \Roman.)
