Libretext Guide to Hyperlinking: https://chem.libretexts.org/Courses/Remixer_University/LibreTexts_Construction_Guide/03%3A_Basic_Editing/3.06%3A_Hyperlinking
Best Practices Summarized:• Use one unique h1 per page that describes what that page is about. That h1 preferably starts just above the main content.• Use headings to describe the content below. Do not use an HTML heading just to make the text appear bigger or stand out.• Use heading levels like the index of a book: hierarchical.• Do not choose a heading by its size, but by its level in the context of the content.• Do not skip a heading level from the top down.
And anything under font size 12 generally becomes inaccessible in LT
Please note that there might be certain things we may not want to mess with in LT because it is a home grown system and some things continue to be glitchy. So much of what is beign stated here is best practices for LibreTexts
Color should not be the only way to convey information in an image or text.
WebAim's article on communicating to the colorblind user: https://webaim.org/articles/visual/colorblind
Think of the cognitive overload for all readers/users
Anything in the San Serif family
Serif fonts are typically for print [think Bookman etc.]and San Serif [Ariel] works great for online.
A good resources to doublecheck and read on accessibility. It is novice friendly language which I like: https://accessibility.princeton.edu/how/content

If you are using Chrome there is a plugin called Colorblindly that works great also
Color Contrast Checker is another one and is a Chrome extension: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/color-contrast-analyzer/dagdlcijhfbmgkjokkjicnnfimlebcll
To download WAVE as browser extension: https://wave.webaim.org/extension/
WAVE can be used to check a Canvas page?
And in Google Docs and in Word the document outline shows the same hierarchy to indicate headings done right.
