3. State of the States: A Globally Competitive Workforce Starts with an Equitable Workplace

Every year, at the start of their respective legislative sessions, governors across the country deliver their assessments of the condition of their states. They offer esteem for outstanding achievements among their citizens or groundbreaking triumphs within their legislature, each one assuring that their state is progressing in a positive direction.

EDITING TIPS AND TUTORIALS: Font Size Increase

Many of you have spoken and we’ve listened to your requests to make your sites more legible and web accessible. The font size on Site Resources sites has been an issue for some time. As a solution, we will be updating the default style sheet and enlarging the standard font sizes on our sites at the end of May. This could affect your sites in a number of ways.

HTML headline code (<H1> through <H6>) should be used specifically for headlines on a page, and are not intended to make text larger or bold. Headline code helps define the structure of a page, highlighting the most important content with a <H1> heading and so forth. Search engines use header code to determine page structure for search engine optimization (SEO). If you have created a page uses headline sizes to format content, this will change the display of your page. This could also rearrange any graphics displayed and the alignment of other elements. We strongly suggest all headings be tagged written in either H2, H3 or H4 with the body of your content tagged in paragraph font size. Note, page titles on Site Resources websites are <H1> by default so you should begin with heading <H2> to show diminishing importance.
