4.2. 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 with-
in one or more headings (like this topic). 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 Chapters
5 and 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.
4.2.1. Heading Tags
The six heading tagswritten as <h1> , <h2> , <h3> , <h4> , <h5> , and <h6> indic-
ate the highest ( <h1> ) to lowest ( <h6> ) precedence a heading may have
in the document.
