A heading is a short text phrase which identifies the section of content that immediately follows it. Heading elements are <h1>-<h6>.

When using headings:

  • Identify heading text using heading elements (<h1>-<h6>).

    • Start at heading element <h1> (recommended).
    • Don't skip heading element levels (e.g <h2>, <h4>) (recommended).
  • Use descriptive text to identify and differentiate the contents of its section from other content on the web page.

Important: Enlarge non-heading text using only CSS. Do not use heading elements.
