Chapter 9. Formatting Text in XHTML > Working with Headers

Working with Headers

Headers help you denote 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 authors already know, you can use headers to represent distinct layers of information within the natural progress of text. My page's title, for example, would be a large header, the first subsection would be titled by using a header size one size smaller than the chapter head, and so forth.

Caution

Header tags seemingly work "backward," 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.
