What are Heading Tags?

In HTML, headings are created with the tags ranging from an <h1> tag to an <h6> tag.

 

<h1> Heading 1 </h1>

<h2> Heading 2 </h2>

<h3> Heading 3 </h3>

<h4> Heading 4 </h4>

<h5> Heading 5 </h5>

<h6> Heading 6 </h6>


Proper Use of Heading Tags


The size of the heading will decrease as the heading number gets larger, <h1> being the largest font and <h6> being the smallest font. However, these tags should not be selected based solely on their size. Tags should instead be used based upon their semantic meaning. An <h1> tag signifies a heading of most importance with the other tags descending in importance and being used as sub headings. Size can always be altered later using styles.


Creating a Heading Through the Ingeniux


While on an Ingeniux page, look to the “Body Copy” section. Once you have the page checked out, you can begin typing within the editor just as you would a word document. To create a heading, select the dropdown menu that is labeled “Format.” This will give you options to select any of the six heading types or a paragraph. Once you have selected the option, begin typing in the editor. You can also select the text you have written, and while it is highlighted, select another option from the format dropdown to change the type of heading or paragraph to which you would like to set the text.


Creating a Heading Through HTML Code

While on an Ingeniux page, look to the “Body Copy” section. Once you have the page checked out, you can click on the small HTML button in the top left section of the “Body Copy” panel. This will open a small box that contains the HTML code that makes up the web page. Locate where you would like your heading and then type out one of the above tags to create a heading, replacing the text between the tags with your own text.
