This is an H6
This is a standard paragraph. It contains bold text for emphasis. Italicized text is included as part of this sample copy. Underlined text is going to look like this.
When you have two paragraphs stacked on top of each other, the spacing above and below is critical. You should pay special attention to the spacing between paragraphs. There is also a consideration for spacing between headers and paragraphs. When you have multiple paragraphs, the amount of white space that occurs through the paragraph settings helps each paragraph stand alone.
This paragraph contains inline anchor text to show the style of the links.
This is another H2 as a sub-headline.
We often use sub-headlines within body copy. Sub-headlines usually have a bit more white space above than below, and the white space below a sub-headline is usually equivalent to the amount of white space between paragraphs.
Overuse of sub-headlines on a page can make the page look too crowded or busy but are often necessary evils when organizing copy to get a point across and emphasize separate sub-topics within a larger post or page.
This is another H3 as another level of sub-headline
Typically, a writer would only include an H3 beneath a leading H2 tag when there are two or more sub-sections that belong underneath the leading H2. In this example, there are two H3 tags beneath the leading H2 demonstrating how the sub-headlines stack up.
As promised, this is a second H3
When a section of content needs to be divided up into sub-sections, header tags should fall in an outline format with each subsequent level of header tag supporting the immediate parent. For example, an H1 leads the primary topic of the page. Each H2 on the page should be supporting topics to the page’s H1 tag. If there are any H3 tags, as we see on this page, the H3 tags should all be sub-topics of the parent H2 as mentioned previously.
Another H2 tag starting a new sub-topic – Other styled text…
There are many standard features in today’s text editors that allow webmasters, copywriters, and other content contributors the ability to easily add content that can be styled for specific emphasis.
This H3 describes lists
There are several types of lists available to users that easily show readers collections of items that need to be broken out into either numbered or bulleted lists.
Here is our first inline H4 describing numbered lists:
Numbered lists put items in a chronological or logical order by putting numbers serially in front of each item. For example:
- Numbered lists give users the ability to reference a specific item based on the assigned number in the list.
- Numbered lists can also put items into a chronological order of operations such as steps through a process.
- Each item in a numbered list should logically follow the item before it in some way.
- Numbered lists can be used to count down from most to least important or vice-versa.
- They can also be used to reference numbers on a diagram or chart.
This is our second inline H4 which describes unordered lists:
Unordered lists by default have bullets instead of numbers. They are useful when their is not a specific order or sequence that the items in the list need to follow. Here is an example:
- Unordered lists are useful when each item can stand alone as a sub-item to the primary topic
- Unordered lists are great for long lists of attributes
- They are also useful when there are four or fewer attributes within the list
- Typically, items in an unordered list are either single words, phrases, or single sentences
- When each item in the list is a single sentence, periods should not be used at the end of the list
This H3 describes other types of styled text
There are other options for styling text that need to be considered. These include:
Left-Justified Copy: In English, most long-form content is left-justified. Since English is read from left to right, left-justified copy gives the reader an anchor from which they begin to read each line. Most posts and static pages rely on left-justified settings when the content spans multiple paragraphs and sections.
Centered Copy: Headlines and other short sections of content are often centered. Sometimes, centered content is used alone to reflect a quote.
Right-Justified Copy: Occasionally, you will see right justified copy on a page. This example of right justified copy represents how far to the right a section of content will appear based on the container the copy resides within. It’s rare that a long-form page or post would be formatted entirely as right justified copy.
