Thank you for bringing up the Field and Court Heraldry aspect of Heraldry.
 All to often people think the only part of heraldry is the armoury (pretty
colored pictures).  I try to inform people that there are different
catagories of heraldry;

     1.)Armoury (creation and research of)
     2.)Name research (fits in closely enough with "our" heraldry that I lump
it here)
     3.)Field heraldry
     4.)Court heraldry
     5.)Precedence (see #2)

I am not very good at the ins and outs and what-goes-where of name
construction thus do not delve into it too deeply.  Field and Court heraldry
can either add a Fantastic bit of feeling to an event or lose one's interest
all together depending how it is done. This I leave to the more theatrically
inclined people. 

 Send me to  the "creating devices" corner and I'm a happy-herald.
