Page headings are important. They help set the tone for the rest of the page, and they are usually in a bigger font, so users notice them. Whenever you want to give your page a heading, HTML has you covered as you have many tags at your disposal.
Six different tags, to be more precise.
- h1 tag
- h2 tag
- h3 tag
- h4 tag
- h5 tag
- h6 tag
<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <title>Headings</title> </head> <body> <h1>I am an h1 header</h1> <h2>I am an h2 header</h2> <h3>I am an h3 header</h3> <h4>I am an h4 header</h4> <h5>I am an h5 header</h5> <h6>I am an h6 header</h6> </body> </html>
Headings are important because they help describe what the page is about and help you establish hierarchy in your page.
