#130751 Mediawiki level 2 heading has smaller font than level 3


As we all know, level 2 heading should have bigger font than level 3.

But check this page: http://apps.sourceforge.net/mediawiki/gnumakeuniproc/index.php?title=More_GnumakeUniproc_examples_you_can_try

"List of examples" is level 2 heading; "Build them all at once" is level 3.

The font size is reversed. See the attached image please.

    Agreed. I have reproduced the issue on my project's MediaWiki. The MediaWiki documentation shows that a section denoted with === should be a subsection of ==.

    I'm escalating this issue to our Support Operations Group for their consideration.

    The header level fonts are defined in the default Mediawiki MonoBook skin. This is the only skin that
    SourceForge provides as part of the Hosted application offering. Unfortunately Sourceforge does not
    support per project skinning.

    The CSS for the fonts are defined as follows:

    h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6 {
    color: black;
    background: none;
    font-weight: normal;
    margin: 0;
    padding-top: .5em;
    padding-bottom: .17em;
    border-bottom: 1px solid #aaa;
    h1 { font-size: 188%; }
    h1 .editsection { font-size: 53%; }
    h2 { font-size: 150%; }
    h2 .editsection { font-size: 67%; }
    h3, h4, h5, h6 {
    border-bottom: none;
    font-weight: bold;
    h3 { font-size: 132%; }
    h3 .editsection { font-size: 76%; font-weight: normal; }
    h4 { font-size: 116%; }
    h4 .editsection { font-size: 86%; font-weight: normal; }
    h5 { font-size: 100%; }
    h5 .editsection { font-weight: normal; }
    h6 { font-size: 80%; }
    h6 .editsection { font-size: 125%; font-weight: normal; }

    You might try using a level 1 header for "List of examples":
    = List of examples =

    Or compare the various levels for contrast:
    = One =
    == Two ==
    === Three ===

    From the font definition it appears that the main difference that you are seeing
    is that the Level 3 header is in bold. The Mediawiki text also may render
    differently across browsers and platforms.

    I hope this helps, if you have further questions please respond to this support
