If you are reading long Arch Wiki pages like the 'Beginners guide' with several subsections only the table of content shows headline numbering. Yet the headline numbering is missing within the text. This can easily lead to wrong reading the text. Then the reader doesn't get the subsection/hierarchy of the text's content. Just switching the font-size isn't enough to improve readability. We can improve this a lot by also adding subsection numbering here.

Lets improve the readability of our Wiki. Maybe use another font family for captions and subsections. Here an example where I changed the font-weight, font-size, color and line-height by using the Ubuntu font-family:

We use mostly the vanilla MonoBook design by MediaWiki. I'd suggest to push more in-depth changes like this upstream then.
