The Heading component will render an html
h2 tag without any default styling. Other heading level elements
h1-h6 are available through use of the
as prop (see System Props for additional explanation). Please reference the w3 recommendations for headings to ensure your headings provide an accessible experience for screen reader users.
Attention: Make sure to include a valid heading element to render a Heading component other than
<Heading as="h1">H1 Element</Heading>).
