Headings are usually short, single-line texts. From other single-line texts they have to be distinguished by special features. A very prominent method, which was used in this document, is to underline headings. Another method would be to use only capital letters in headings. Isolated, single, most short lines of text are frequently also interpreted as headings, however, when they don't end with a punctuation mark. Such a character marks the end of a sentence mostly. A maximum title length of 75 characters is arbitrarily accepted in Text2HTML. If an isolated line is shorter and doesn't end with a punctuation mark, it is interpreted as a heading.
The following kinds of headings can be seen in the browser both, as HTML appearances and in their original text form.
