4. Text Basics > Headings

Headings

Users have a hard enough time reading what’s displayed on a screen. A long flow of text, unbroken by title, subtitles, and other headers, crosses the eyes and numbs the mind, not to mention the fact that it makes it nearly impossible to scan the text for a specific topic.

You should always break a flow of text into several smaller sections within one or more headings (like this book). There are six levels of HTML/XHTML headings that you can use to structure a text flow into a more readable, more manageable document. And, as we discuss in Chapter 5 and Chapter 8, there are a variety of graphical and text-style tricks that help divide your document and make its contents more accessible as well as more readable to users.
