Blog Headings (23rd March 2007)

There are lots of interpretations of HTML headings. On this blog, I assumed that only one entry would be added each day and put the date in the <h2> which starts the entry. But if there are more entries, things stop making sense.

For example, take the headings from A Gift To Myself entry:

This needs to change.

I don’t think the date is the most important part of a blog entry. People will generally be interested in the topic being written about because it matches their interests or whatever. When it was written is secondary to that.

I think each entry should get an <h2> but the date shouldn’t appear in it. I can put this in a <p> at the start, like a lot of blogs do.

There are a lot of blog archives to apply this change to. But I think it’s worth getting headings right.
