Department Styles

This page features all of the general styles to be used throughout page layout for the website. For information on when to use these styles visit the Best Practices Section. Find out how to use them in the Tips, Tricks & Training section.


Typography

This paragraph has a class of "intro". Almost all of your pages should include an intro paragraph as a synopsis for the reader and to help with the flow of the information.

Blockquote text format can be used to call out portions of your copy. The other text on your page will wrap around the blockquote.

Note: When smaller text is needed, class="small" can be used.

An even smaller font style (class="fineprint"), with extended letter spacing for readability, can be used for fine print, labels on form fields, etc.

Definition Terms - are an item in a list and this is an example.
Definition descriptions are slightly indented from the "term" that precedes them.

Header Typography

Header 1

The "Header 1" format should be the first header on every page. Sometimes your header will be created for you when you chose the name of you page, but sometimes you will have to add it yourself.

Header 2

The "Header 2" format is the next level of headers on your page.  You can break up sections of your page using headers to create a better user experience and section your page out for better readability.

Header 3

The "Header 3" format should be used in subsections after you have used the Header 2 format.  Not only do headers help people read through your pages section by section, but screen readers can determine the layout of the page by following the header formats in order from top to bottom.

Header 4

The "Header 4" format follows the above.  Although not many pages will have four levels of subsections, you have the flexibility if it's needed.

Header 5

As mentioned above, not too many pages will have this many levels of headers, but these styles can also be used in call out boxes and other areas of your page after you have used the higher levels of headers in the main section.

Header 6

This is the final level of header that has been set up for our purposes.

Special Call Out Boxes:

Use a "div" as a Call Out for anything.

This item is quite important and this method is a good way to accomplish that which gets around the restrictions of the widgets (this is just a regular piece of content in the WYSIWG, not a widget).  Visit the Call Out Box training page to learn how to do this.

Pretty neat, eh? ~ WIT
