==== The problem
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.
