HEADING TAGS AND HEADING STYLES TO IMPROVE ACCESSIBILITY

Heading styles have been added to the body and summary fields. If you want to change the appearance of a heading as it appears on the page (for instance, you want a Heading 2 to have a Heading 4 style). For accessibility purposes, the proper heading tag must be reapplied to the text AFTER selecting a heading style.

HEADING STYLE INSTRUCTIONS

Please follow these instructions to change the heading style appearance:

  1. Highlight the text.
  2. Select “Heading 4” from the Styles dropdown to make the text look like a Heading 4.
  3. Select “Heading 2” from the Format dropdown. It will change the text appearance back to the default Heading 2 style, but it will retain the Heading 4 style when the page is saved.

It is imperative that the heading tags continue to be selected from the Format menu for accessibility, regardless of the style applied to it.
