Word comes with nine predefined heading styles, used to distinguish different heading levels
from each other. Many students are initially confused about this; after all, a thesis will have
much more than just 9 headings in it!
However, the heading styles should be considered headings on 9 different levels, which do not
pertain to the total number of headings you are using. The different numbers on the heading
styles indicate a level in the hierarchy of your headings. This is a structural concept; which parts
of your text are parts of other, larger parts? A chapter will always have subsections, which may
have subsections, too.
Heading 1 is your level 1 heading, the
highest heading in your hierarchy.
Heading 2 is a level 2 heading, and thus
should be used on any subsection of a
section using Heading 1. Heading 3 is used
on any subsection of a section using
and so on! This is more easily
explained using a visual hierarchy display
(left). It uses numbering to indicate which
sections are parts of other sections.
