Do not use if another appropriate element should be used (ex: a legend in a fieldset or a label in a form).

Formatting

  • Always use head levels in order.

A developer needs paragraph level text.

When to Use

Use if you need generic text or paragraph level text.

When Not to Use

Do not use if another appropriate elment can and should be used.

Formatting

  • This style applies to most plain text. If there is not a specific section below for a content structure, default to this.
  • Use an H2 if there is a title.
  • Use P for text.
  • Not every <p></p> tag needs to be wrapped in a section. Section tags are to note the start/end of anew component area.
