Herb Schulz was suggesting using specific packages (called in the  
preamble of your document via \usepackage) like sectsty or titlesec,  
rather than doing any redefinition through \newcommand. See:


In case you have TeXShop installed, just double-click these DVI  
files: TeXShop will convert them transparently to PDF format then  
display them.

\bf is a command from LaTeX 2.09. It has been deprecated and replaced  
in LaTeX 2e, publicly released in 1994, by \bfseries.

For more information on LaTeX, other than the various commercially  
available books on it, see the Online LaTeX Documentation section of  
<http://www.tug.org/begin.html>. A popular document among newcomers  
to LaTeX (such as the Master or PhD students at my institute) is, in  
particular, <http://www.tug.org/tex-archive/info/lshort/english/

All the Roman, or serif, text from your document will be set in  
Times. All sans-serif text will be set in Helvetica. All monospaced,  
or typewriter-like, text will be set in Courier.
