Purpose of this example

What follows is a list of items that have been marked up with a designation of heading level 3. In fact this is not the correct mark-up. Each item is without associated content expected of a document "heading" but has been used instead for visual styling. Therefore, this use does not fulfill the semantic requirement for use of a heading and would be flagged as non-conformant with Success criterion 2.4.6 Headings and Labels and Success criterion 1.3.1 Info-Relationships.
