If you have text elements that are all the same color (ie Black), what is the optimal way to logically group text for readability?
Should you change the text color for title/subject headings? Would a hierarchical grouping be preferred over lists? I understand that you can make elements visually different using color, shape, size, etc..., but does that help or hinder readability? I'm not sure of the balance between directing the user to read something with the least amount of visual effort and confusing them with too much contrast here?
Take for example groupings of software technologies as sample text, as in libraries, API's, frameworks, architectures, tools, toolkits, etc... they are inter-related, but somewhat disparate.
