"So by all means vary the style for the tags but don't switch them around." <-- I totally agree. It's a visual style issue not an information hierarchy issue. The events are sub info chunks of the main info chunk "see our events", so they have to be of lower heading hierarchy. However, you might have the intention of pointing out the user i.e. to a ...

Consider which is important, based on if the view is repetitive in nature. There can be 2 cases for such representation of data. Repeating view with dynamic data (for smaller header) Limited view with static data. For case 1 : Let's consider a case where user view this frequently, and as they keep repeating, larger header keep becoming less important. ...

There are two things you need to consider when it comes to the visual presentation of hierarchy: Functional aspect - is the presentation of visual hierarchy consistent? If you can apply this in a consistent manner then it will create the effect required in the organization of content on your page. I imagine that if you had a lot of large h3 tags it might ...

This is a kind of 2D tree view control and is very rare in use. I have seen such kind of thing using icons instead of labels and that gave a bit better look than this one. In my opinion, it is better to display the sub-options at a separate place instead of growing the tree.

I have not seen this pattern employed exactly as you describe. My relevant experience in information-rich webapps stems from enterprise health-monitoring and deployment software, which has a deep navigation hierarchy. In my opinion, the left-navigation and the main content should not both employ accordions. Left hand navigation is typically vertical, and as ...

I haven’t seen this type of control before, but I imagine it would work. All if the information Architecture is logical to the user and the implementation work as expected. This probably derives from the need to navigate information dense web applications where you need some way to hide things that doesn’t belong to content, such as navigation. It could ...

I think your problem is mostly one of changing the keyboard focus, isn't it? Most platforms have existing shortcuts for some of these things. E.g. in pretty much every view in MacOS Finder you can use Cmd+Shift+Up-Arrow and Cmd+Shift+Down-Arrow to go one hierarchy level up or down. You could probably re-purpose that to let people move keyboard focus between ...

Rather than having different key combinations to navigate parent to parent (skipping children), why not just use the up and down arrows, or the tab (forwards) and shift-tab (backwards) for moving through everything in the hierarchy that is open? This will free up the key combinations. For this to work, you need a shortcut key to close and open the current ...
