Headings for Structure & Lists

Source: WebAim

  • Use Headings for content headings (header 1, header 2, etc.) instead of text formatting, such as font size or bold to give the visual appearance of heading
  • Likewise, do not use headers to achieve visual results only.
  • Use Lists and ordered lists properly

More information & tips for structure and lists in HTML can be found on WebAIM.
