HTML terminology for titles and subtitles might not be the clearest way to convey our message
Introducing Improvements to Titles, Subtitles, and Headings

This is definitely true. Unfortunately, it looks like the HTML headings (at least on this post) are pretty wonky. The article title is an H3 (should be an H1) while headings are H3s (should be H2) and subheadings are H4s (should be H3s). Using a tool like tota11y (, you can see the heading structure of this article makes no sense! According to your markup, this page has no title or sections! This is important for search and accessibility. I love the thought that went into the design of this change. It definitely looks better. Just please make the markup equally good!
