It is important publishers follow the correct heading style structure to uphold the University’s accessibility standards of a AA compliance rating. Correct heading styles are also very important for good search engine optimisation (SEO). Headings should be used in the following order:
- h1 (page name - automatically generated when a page is created)
- h2 (should always be the first sub-heading on a page)
- h3 (follows a h2 - if you do not have a h2 already on your page, do not use a h3)
- h4 (follows a h3)
- h5 (follows a h4)
- h6 (follows a h6)
Headings should always be used logically to break content into sections and sub-sections.
