Using Headings

In some ways, headings are your most important tool for guiding visitors through your Web pages. Headings function exactly like headlines in a newspaper by enabling readers to scan a page for a particular topic—without needing to read any of the text details. As with a newspaper, big headings should be used for your most important topics and smaller headings for less important items. It’s simple—but vital—in bringing visual order to your pages. While this section just deals with heading sizes, remember you also can change heading font, color, and style. For details, see Formatting Text.

To add headings

1.
Click anywhere in the line of text you want to make into a heading.

2.
Click on the Style drop-down menu in the Formatting toolbar and select the heading size you want to apply (Figure 5.37). Heading 1 is the largest; Heading 6 the smallest (Figure 5.38).

Figure 5.37. To convert text to a heading, use the Style drop-down menu to select the heading size you want.


Figure 5.38. Sizes range from Heading 1, the largest, to Heading 6, the smallest.


3.
Release your cursor and the heading will be applied (Figure 5.39).
