Sorry, my question wasn't clear.  In fact I have two questions.

If I have a paragraph starting just after a HEADING, and I use the
defaut behaviour (no indentation of the first paragraph), is it the same
thing to add or omit .PP before this first paragraph just after a
HEADING? Isn't .PP useless as I don't want to indent the pragraph?

Second question, is it a recommended style not to indent the first
paragraph, at least in English typesetting? I've noticed that most of
the English books I have don't indent the first paragraph while most of
the French books do so, although it's not always the case.
