Text Formatting

The Case web template has examples for most types of content, and is designed to look consistent across all departments in the division, as well as the entire university. It is also designed to be compliant with applicable regulations for accessibility (known as section 508). Only minimal formatting should be required on your part.

These are the types of formatting you will typically need to apply to your content:

  • Use of headlines H5 and H6 for section headings
  • Use of bold, italic, and underline in normal text for emphasis
  • Changing the font color to a specific useful color (e.g. red for a warning message)
  • Changing the background color of a headline or table cell to a shade of your theme color
  • Justification of text (right, center, left) in a table cell
  • Superscript and subscript

These types of formatting should be avoided:

  • Changing the font face
  • Changing the font size
  • Use of bold, italic and underline to mimic the look of a section heading
  • Changing the font color to arbitrary colors
  • Changing the background color of arbitrary objects
  • Changing the background color to a color other than your site's theme
  • Justification (right or center) of headings
  • Justification (right or center) of page text
  • Using the RETURN key to create line breaks
  • Using the SPACE BAR to position text on the screen
