Working with Headers

HTML headers help you announce specific areas of a document by titling that individual area. The header tag is an alphanumeric combination of an "H" plus a numeric value ranging from 1–6, 1 being the largest, and 6 being the smallest. As many seasoned coders already know, you can use headers to represent distinct layers of information within the natural progress of text. My title, for example, would be a large header, the first sub-section would be titled by using a header size one size smaller than the chapter head, and so forth.

Caution

Header tags seemingly work "backwards," with the lowest value, "1," creating the largest visual header. Remember that this is a convention born of document formatting, where a larger header denotes the dominant level of concept, and so forth. In HTML, this applies only to header tags, and does not follow through with other HTML size conventions, such as with the FONT tag, where sizing runs from small numbers to denote small text, to larger numbers for larger text.
