Comments

Make it clear which title belongs with which details. Compare the top and bottom halves in Figure 1.

Visually connect title and details

Figure 1. Visually connect title and details

In the bottom half, it’s more obvious which content and title go together. That’s done by:

  • Having more vertical whitespace above a title than below it.
  • Indenting.

You can nest subsections within sections, subsubsections in subsections, etc.

When nesting, make the lower level titles look less important. E.g., <h2> could be bigger and bolder than <h3>
