CMS Documentation

Content on Mississippi College websites should only be one of four types:

  • Heading
  • Paragraph
  • List
  • Table

No other formatting (including different fonts, different font sizes, different colors) other than that which is specified below should be used.

Headings

The following headings are used to provide a brief description of sections of content.  Heading 1 should only be used at the very top of a page as a page title.

Examples:

HEADING 1

HEADING 2

Heading 3

Heading 4

ParagraphS

Standard paragraph text (like you see here) should be used for blocks of text on a page.  They should typically be limited to no more than three sentences.

Lists

Lists should be used to display a sequential or non-sequential list of items or brief sentences.

Examples:

Ordered List

  1. Item 1
  2. Item 2
  3. Item 3

Unordered List

  • Item 1
  • Item 2
  • Item 3

Tables

Tables should be used when data would be best presented in tabular format, rather than in a list or paragraph.

Example:

Column 1 Column 2 Column 3
Row 1, Column 1 Row 1, Column 2 Row 1, Column 3
Row 2, Column 1 Row 2, Column 2 Row 2, Column 3
