5.1 Headings

The UNG website implements site-wide styling for heading tags to ensure consistency in typography, spacing and colors.

Samples

Heading 1

Heading 1 is most important. Reserved and automatically assigned to the page heading. Do not use in main content. Use title case for writing the headings.

Heading 2

Always start with this tag when creating section headings on your page. Use title case for writing the headings.

Heading 3

Use title case for writing the headings.

Heading 4

Use title case for writing the headings.

Heading 5

Use title case for writing the headings.

Heading Usage

  • All headings should be written using title case. See 'Using Title Case' section for more information.
  • Heading tags are used to determine the hierarchy or structure of the content of a page.
  • Headings should be left aligned. 
  • Headlines should not be bolded.
  • Headlines should not be ALL CAPS.
  • Heading 2 to 5: These tags may be used in main content and must follow in order, no skipping.
  • Heading 6: No formatting. Do not use.
  • Headings should be carefully written. Think strategically when you create them. Search engines weigh words in titles heavier than words in general body or content text.

Using Title Case in Headings

UNG style is to use title case (upstyle) for headings on the website.

Some basic rules:

  • Capital letters are used for the first letter of principal words in the titles.
  • First and last words are always capitalized
  • Articles, conjunctions and prepositions are only capitalized if they start the title or have four of more letters.
