HTML supports 6 levels of headings (numbered, surprisingly, 1 to 6). A heading level is declared by using the following tags:
- Should appear at the beginning of your heading.
- Should appear at the end of your heading.
where number is the number of the required heading level.
Examples of Heading settings
Text marked as follows:
<h1>Heading level 1</h1> <h2>Heading level 2</h2> <h3>Heading level 3</h3> <h4>Heading level 4</h4> <h5>Heading level 5</h5> <h6>Heading level 6</h6>
would appear in the following styles:
Heading level 1
Heading level 2
Heading level 3
Heading level 4
Heading level 5
Heading level 6
It is very important that you balance your text to the various heading styles. In most cases heading level 1 should be used for top level or main headings and heading level 2 and 3 for "side" headings.
Note: Heading level 4 is the same size as the default font and higher levels of headings begin to get smaller in comparison to the body text.
