Titles and Headings

ADA compliance is something that we should be working toward. I’ve trained many users on creating ADA compliant documents, but there is at least one thing that is really hard to explain. The difference between Titles and Heading 1.

In coded HTML, Titles are specified. Headings similarly specified. Titles and H1 are functionally similar, but have different purposes in HTML. When writing this by hand, each page written in HTML should have one H1 which functions as the page title. (The title tag is written out but not displayed).

Here is an example of the HTML and the result:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en"> <head>     <title>Testing Heading Code</title>     <meta name="generator" content="BBEdit 12.1" />
</head>
<body>
<h1>This is Heading 1</h1> In Wordpress, the Title is tagged as a Heading 1. <i>The Title Tag is handled outside a post, in the Theme appearance settings.</i> </body>
</html>
