The current text on your pages has already had formatting applied to them to make sure that they are accessible and adhere to the PCC design style guide. The below information should be used to add new text to your page. It's best practice to leave the current formatting as is
The Heading Elements not only change the style of the text, but also add code known as semantic markup to identify the structure of your content. It is very important to use headings correctly to make sure your content is accessible.

There will only be one Heading 2, always applied to the page title, the first line on the Main Content section. You only use this once.
Headings 3 -5 are additional headings under a Heading 2
Basic Text. If you do not apply a format element to your new content text, it will automatically be paragraph text.
