Using Heading Styles

The standard for formatting titles and sub-tiles on a website is to use Heading styles. These are extra important to use due to the fact search engines can then identify page topics, accessibility tools can see the structure of your page and subjects on your page are easier to find.

To set a Heading, highlight a title and click on the Paragraph format drop down to apply a Heading level and look.
