What in heaven's name is a "Heading 4," and when do I use one?

Every website has a built in stylesheet that globally governs the appearance of text on a page. Whenever possible, you should stick to the global formatting.  Within this formatting though, there is still some grey area.  Here's a few things to keep in mind.

Opening Paragraph

The opening paragraph has formatting applied to it automatically.  Within the opening paragraph, you can use bold and italics for emphasis.  You can also add links to relevant content.  Any other information you add (images, tables, kittens) will be removed automatically by the system and will not display on your page.

Standard Body Text

Standard body text (like the text you're reading right now) should use the "Paragraph" setting in the text format drop down.  For the html junkies in the crowd, use <p> tags.  Within this text, you can use bold and italics for emphasis.  Underlined text should be reserved for links, not used for emphasis, as it can confuse website visitors.

Headings

There are four heading styles built into Salli.  Ok, so technically there are five, but Heading 1 is reserved for the name of group areas.  More accurately, there are only four that you can use.  They are as follows:

Heading 2

Heading 3

Heading 4

Heading 5

When do you use which heading?  We recommend using Heading 4 as the default if you need to break up the content on a page (like this page).  If you need two levels of headings, use Heading 3 for the top level headings and Heading 4 for the second level headings.  If you need three levels of headings, then you probably have too much information to fit nicely on one web page.  Consider breaking your content into multiple pages.

Within headings, you can use bold and italics for emphasis.  Underlined text should be reserved for links, not used for emphasis, as it can confuse website visitors.
