Kayla Block: rule i always knew was 1 - h1 2 - h2 3 - h3
Not sure if it mattered below that
Michael Martinez: You can take them all the way to H9 if you wish. The content should support that kind of breakdown.
Todd Weise: Markup should semantically be appropriate for the content.
Kayla Block: can you translate that to my question? I hear "semantic html" but don`t really know what it means
Todd Weise: if you’ve got a listicle and it’s of say 8 things. And for each of the items you’ve got a main head or subhead and then there’s some paragraphs to support it. Then yes. In your listicle there’s only like one line per list item. Nope.
Kayla Block: I`m still not sure I`m following, but I think you`re saying: If your listicle has one paragraph per, then no, you can`t keep using H3 for every header?
Kayla Block: Looks like the only one that matters is h1
Michael Martinez: If it doesn`t break the screen readers to implement the hierarchy then it is okay to use the full hierarchy for the majority of visitors. If - however - it DOES break screen readers, then to avoid being sued for making a sight inaccessible (now happening in the United States), don`t implement the outline structure.
