Headings provide readers with an outline of a document. Users can jump between headings and can see what will be in the document without having to read it all. Headings are have six levels of tags. <H1> through <H6>. These tags are important because they establish part of the hierarchy. An <H1> tag should always be above the rest of the heading tags. An <H6> tag is always the lowest heading tag. Heading 1 level tags are always labeled with a name for a section or sometimes a title. The lower heading tags are for sections within a section. Hence the importance of the hierarchyThis provides a very organized structure for your tags.
