Markdown has become the favored markup language to structure text files. With good cause: The syntax is intuitive and there are a lot of possibilities to translate them into a visual layout format.
Headings introduce and order the segments on a page. On a website with many pages, each level should have similar importance.
Paragraphs are the essential building blocks of text. Comfortable proportions and surrounding whitespace contribute to their legibility.
