[SLH] Showing Heading Structure just gives the page title and the headings. It is a much more simple result. The Page Information has lots of other information. Especially since this is the first check that they do, I think it would be better just to provide the more simple result.

[SLH] You are correct. I fixed it.

[SLH] Thanks! I added the keyboard instructions for all of these.

[SLH] We previously discussed this and decided that we didn't want them to zoom too much for an easy check, so decided on 4. Let me know if you think we should re-discuss this point.

[SLH] I'll add these to the wiki for EOWG input.

Thanks!
