Headings In Articles?

Maybe I'm missing something, but I can't find a way to conveniently put HTML heading tags (e.g. <H3></H3>) around sub-headings within my articles. I've only been able to do it by changing to HTML View and manually entering them. Is there a better way to do this?

If you only have one level of sub-headings, one thing you might do is use plain ol' bold text (or underline) for the subheadings, then change your style sheet in the template to map bold (underline) to the large font and style you want.

I did this for the CityDesk help file. Notice how the bold text in the help file is in a different font than all the other text? I did this with the following style sheet:

<style type="text/css">
<!--
STRONG {font-weight: bold; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif; }
-->
</style>

Use "STRONG" for bold, "EM" for italic, "U" for underline.
