HTML Heading

    In this HTML tutorial, we will discuss the HTML heading elements and all the heading tags present in HTML5.

    To display the section heading, title or subtitle we can use the HTML heading tags. In HTML 5 we have 6 heading tags start from <h1> up to <h6>, where <h1> specify the largest heading and <h6> represent the smallest or sub heading.
