Headings, their level and the section they denote are hard to recognize on wiki pages.
- It's hard to distinguish the 3rd heading level in articles (h4) from the content.
- The recognition of h2 being higher level than h3 does not come naturally.
- Depending on the available fonts on the viewer's system h3 can look bigger than h2.
Sample: in Vector.
T65844: h3 should not be more prominent than h2 headings
T71998: Vector: h3 should not appear as heavier weight than h2
T71999: MonoBook: h3 should not appear as heavier weight than h2
T72004: h4, h5, and h6 headers should not have the same styling
T73240: Re-evaluate serif font stack for headers
