Hi,

I want to produce an environment so that when it follows anything but a
chapter( or section, subsection, etc...) command it inserts a \smallskip.  I
have been unable to do this.  Help please!

Here is a small example of code that I have tried, but that doesn't work

\newboolean{indent}
\setboolean{indent}{false}

\newcommand{\bensection}[1]{\setboolean{indent}{false}\section{#1}}

\newenvironment{Para}
{\ifthenelse{\boolean{indent}}{\smallskip}{\setboolean{indent}{true}}
\noindent\ignorespaces}
{\ignorespacesafterend}

I am running an up to date version of MikTeX.
