We are not really fussy about formating… saying that here are a few pointers to keep everything looking its best
Use Headers, Header 1 should not be used on your article, header 2 and header 3 are the more common header to use. They should allow you to have a hierarchy, such as if your article is fruit and your first section is citrus fruit, citrus fruit would be a header 2, orange would be a header 3. Your write up about the orange would be your text under header 3.
