Page structure

Structure the document to create a meaningful outline

Structure helps individuals understand how a document is organized.

The document structure should provide an outline that gives an overview of the main topics, subtopics, and groups of content both visually and non-visually.

Create an outline using:

  • Headings
  • Lists
  • Data Tables
  • Columns
  • Table of Contents

Each piece of a document's structure should be visually distinct from other content and accessible with assistive technology. Many types of assistive technology will use the structural information to improve navigation for users.
