<h1> – <h6>

The h1 to h6 tags, or Heading elements, define HTML headings, with <h1> being the most important and <h6> being the least.


Heading elements should not be used to resize text. This should be done using CSS instead. There should only be one <h1> tag per page, and heading levels should not be skipped. Use <h1>, then <h2>, and so on.

  <h1>This is the main title</h1>
  <p>This is some content.</p>
  <h2>This is a secondary heading</h2>
  <p>This is some additional content.</p>
  <h3>And another, smaller heading</h3>
  <p>This is some more additional content.</p>
