Checkpoint 1.1 - Wikis
Use headings throughout the body of the wiki entry
WCAG 1.0 Priority 2
WCAG Guideline 12. Provide context and orientation information.
Wikis are information-rich, highly structured, encylopedic pages for use as reference by the reader. The structure of the wiki entry needs to consider this so as to be most usable and readable for the audience. This can be supported by clearly and logically delineating content through the use of headings.
All major and minor logical content sections need to be introduced by a heading.
Advantage can be made of all six HTML heading levels. Do not skip over a heading level in sequence. HTML headings can be modified visually using CSS.
