This course introduces web designers to the nuts and bolts of HTML (HyperText Markup Language), the programming language used to create web pages. Author Bill Weinman explains what HTML is, how it's structured, and presents the major tags and features of the language. Discover how to format text and lists, add images and flow text around them, link to other pages and sites, embed audio and video, and create HTML forms. Additional tutorials cover the new elements in HTML5, the latest version of HTML, and prepare you to start working with Cascading Style Sheets (CSS).
The heading elements are available in six levels. Let's go ahead and a take a quick look at this. Make a working copy of headings.html and name that headings-working.html. I am going to open that in my text editor, and you can see here we have the different headings. Headings is a block level element and it can also include other block level elements, and here you see we have these six levels of headings. Let's take a look at what those look like in the browser. Go ahead open that in Firefox and there you see there is one Heading 1, Heading 2, Heading 3, 4, 5, 6, and they get progressively smaller.
Of course you can, and it is very common to reformat these with CSS. They could all be the same size and be different colors. Some of them could have borders on them. There's all kinds of things you can do with these with CSS, but to go ahead and use the different Heading levels, helps your page to get properly index and helps it to be readable in different mediums that they not be visual mediums. So for example, if I wanted to take this, say Heading 3, and go ahead and put a paragraph in it, save that and reload it in the browser, you see there I've Heading 3 and I have another paragraph in the Heading, and it becomes formatted like that.
Of course, you can change that behavior in CSS as well. But this demonstrates that the Heading is a block level element and other block level elements are allowed within this block level element. So there are six levels of heading elements available. They can be styled with CSS to make them work with the look of your document.
