Headings + Lists


The HTML standard has h1 element as well as five additional text heading elements, appropriately named h2 through h6.

It should be noted that heading elements should not be used to manipulate the font size of a heading. Rather, the levels represent semantically the difference between a main header, sub-header, etc.

To practice good style, you shouldn’t skip heading levels when structuring your HTML pages. In other words, an h2 element should be used for a header one level below an h1 element, an h3 element should be used a level below h2, and so on.
