To add a heading style
  1. Type this text into a Word document:

    Fly fishing on the Olympic peninsula There I was, up to my knees in the icy-cold water of the Hoh river. It was November 2009.

  2. Select the phrase, "Fly fishing on the Olympic peninsula".

  3. In the Styles gallery on the Home tab (press Alt+H, then L), click the Heading 1 button.

Word applied font and color changes to the phrase, and set it apart to help make it clear that this is the title, the Heading 1, of the article. The next article section would be a Heading 2.
