Text Formatting Style Guide

The following examples show visual formatting of textual content.

Heading Structure

Main Heading (Heading 3)

To maintain proper outline, start content headings with Heading 3 (H3) and move down from there. The reason for starting from H3 is that H1 is used for site title ("ArchiveHub") and H2 is used for page title ("About", "Downloads", etc.). There should be only one instance of H1 on a page and in this case also H2.

Secondary Heading (Heading 4)

Ne pri veri brute periculis, sea cu appareat facilisi expetenda. Ut vide elitr nec, persecuti efficiendi at pro. Suscipit praesent pri et, mutat verear prodesset ne has, tibique accumsan voluptatum an sed. Ex idque paulo homero has.

Third-level Heading (Heading 5)

Has nemore invenire te, per te aliquip pericula voluptatibus. His id sumo quidam meliore. Sumo brute mediocrem id vis. Quis oratio ad per.  Ex mea exerci nostrum expetenda, laoreet invenire scribentur sea id, vel ferri fastidii evertitur ea.

Fourth-level Heading (Heading 6)

Ne pri veri brute periculis, sea cu appareat facilisi expetenda. Ut vide elitr nec, persecuti efficiendi at pro. Suscipit praesent pri et, mutat verear prodesset ne has, tibique accumsan voluptatum an sed. Ex idque paulo homero has.

The failure of the federal levee system during Hurricane Katrina changed the way I think about the world around me. I was 20-years-old, but I understood for the first time that our cities are what we make them.
