In Firefox on Linux, h3 looks more prominent than h2
Closed, DuplicatePublicFeature

Description

What teams or group is this for? Anyone interested in article presentation.

Who is your main point of contact and contact preference? Hypothetically Nick Ray.

What are the details of your request? Include relevant timelines or deadlines Precedence of level 2 and level 3 headings is reversed. Ie. level 3 is more prominent than level 2. See wikipedia:Village_pump_(technical)#Styles_of_level_2_and_level_3_headings for details.

How does the request fit withinin the departmental or foundation priorities? Prominence of headings should be consistent with intended nesting.

Is this request urgent or time sensitive? The present state has existed for years and consequently repair isn't severely time sensitive. But the repair should be almost trivial for anyone with working knowledge of the code. Probably the repair can be completed in a few minutes.

Hi, which exact skin is this about? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Village_pump_(technical)#Styles_of_level_2_and_level_3_headings implies this is about Monobook?
Which browser(s)? Could you attach a screenshot?
(For future reference, please follow https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/How_to_report_a_bug - thanks a lot!)

Firefox in Linux Debian 11 here. The skin is default. Vector according to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Skin .

Screenshot at http://easthope.ca/WikipediaUEFAEuro2012Final.png . I scaled down a little to conserve data and reduce latency. If you need higher resolution, just let me know.

"Route to the final" is h2. "Spain" is h3.

In Android 7.1.1, Chrome 94.0.4606.85, also default skin, precedence isn't so bad. "Route to the final" is noticeably larger than "Spain" although the former is plain faced and the latter is bold.

So the problem in this environment is in Vector. If you have MS Windows the problem might not be visible.

Will read the instructions for bug reporting.

Ah, thanks! This might be related to the font-weight and to the fonts available on your system that get picked by your browser(s).
h2 uses a serif font, font-weight 400, size 21px.
h3 uses a sans-serif font, font-weight 700, size 16.8px.
This is the same topic as T65844: h3 should not be more prominent than h2 headings; see also some discussion in T71998: Vector: h3 should not appear as heavier weight than h2.
