HTML is all about Structure
Text online is not the same as text on paper. Text online is all about structure and semantics. A bulleted list is not just text with a dot before the first word. In the web world a bulleted list is a type of data. Likewise a header is not just bigger, bolder text, it too is a type of data.
Publish forces users to create web pages in a visual editor that does not show what the final text will look like once it’s online. When they select text to be a first level header (by selecting “Heading 1″ or “H1″ from a pull-down list) the text becomes gigantic and they quickly select a smaller heading size by selecting Heading 4 or H4. But they are doing themselves, their visitors, and the SOU website in general a disservice. Regardless of how it looks, the first header on a page should be set as H1. How that H1 looks online is controlled via a totally separate mechanism call CSS (Cascading Style Sheets). It’s CSS that enforces a consistent look across the website.
Think of your document like an outline.
