Types of Headings

There are six different HTML headings which are defined with the <h1> tag to <h6> tag.

  • <h1> is the most important heading.
  • <h6> is the least important heading.

Browsers automatically add some space before and after a heading.
Every tag displays the heading in a different style and font size. <h1> heading should be used for the main heading of the document, followed by <h2> headings, then the less important heading <h3>, and so on.

Example :

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <h1 title = "Heading 1">Hello World!</h1>
    <h2 title = "Heading 2">Hello World!</h2>
    <h3 title = "Heading 3">Hello World!</h3>
    <h4 title = "Heading 4">Hello World!</h4>
    <h5 title = "Heading 5">Hello World!</h5>
    <h6 title = "Heading 6">Hello World!</h6>
