When to use a Heading
Headings are one of the most important elements of structure. When headings are properly used they create hierarchical data structures; which are leveraged by web browsers, screen reader software, and this particular documentation framework to organize headings.
How to Create a Heading
- Once in editing mode, Headings can be specified by changing the 'Paragraph' formatting of text to the appropriate Heading. This button is shown below.
- Sections, such as 'Design Guidelines', should be stylized with an appropriate heading.
- In this case 'Headings', 'Design Guidelines', and 'An Example' are formatted as a Heading 2, because the title of the page 'Headings' defaults to a Heading 1.
Below there are a number of formatted headings with a Table of Contents inserted into this document rendering headings to depict how the nest appropriately.
