Reading: Investigating Layout Revision
The layout of a text may help you spot the details more easily. Use these to help you decide what to look for first.
Some features include:
- Using bold
These layout features may give guidance on where specific information is stored.
Things to do
There is a bowling alley located 5 miles from the city centre
You can go swimming one mile away from the hotel
There are many shopping centres in the city
This may be found in a leaflet for vising a particular place. You would look at the text under this subheading if it was relevant to what you want to know.

Other examples include:
- Website menu
= A website menu is usually on the home page of a website. They provide links that will take you to different pages depending on what you want to know.
= Tabs are similar to a website menu, but are located at the top of a website. These also take you to different pages.
= An index is usually found at the end of a text. They are also in alphabetical order, meaning you can find exactly what you want depending on the first letter!
All of these examples tell you where to go in order to receive relevant information.
