Headings

Headings describe the material that follows them. The appropriate placement of a document heading depends on the content and flow of information. For example, several pages of material might fit well in the context of a single first-level heading, while a few sentences might require a fourth-level heading. Use first-level headings for the broadest summaries, and become more specific as you progress to fourth-level headings. Do not go beyond fourth-level headings. If you have additional topics to cover beyond fourth-level headings, restructure the text. Try to have at least two headings at each level.

For more information about writing headings for online documents, see “Write Meaningful Headings and Subheadings” on page 96. For more information about writing procedure headings, see “Use Procedure Headings Appropriately” on page 125.
