Chapter 4. Online Writing Style > Writing Short, Self-Contained Topics

Writing Short, Self-Contained Topics

Write topics that minimize screen readability problems and that help readers find needed information quickly. Follow these guidelines:

  • Divide text into self-contained, linked topics.

  • Keep topics short.

    Online topics can be quite short. However, just one or two short sentences probably do not justify splitting off the text into a separate topic.

  • Focus on the structure of content, not on how formatting renders online.

  • Include transitions within each topic.
