Word Headings and Title

Hi Everyone,

I just wanted to confirm something about Word docs and making them

I have a document that was made with a title and then headings after that,
and I didn't think that was the best way to go (they chose these from the
home ribbon bar in Word). What I would do is make the title of the document
as the H1 and then the major categories would be H2 and any sub categories
as H3, so for example:

This is the title of the Word doc (H1)

Category 1 (h2)
sub category 1A (h3)
Sub category 1B (h3)
Category 2 (h2)
sub category 2A (h3)
Sub category 2B (h3)

Would you agree?
