Lesson 2: Headings
HTML allows you to structure your pages with headings. There are 6 levels of heading. Here’s a sample document that uses all of them.
<html> <head> <title>My First Web Page</title> </head> <body> <h1>Top-level Heading</h1> <h2>Second-level Heading</h1> <h3>Third-level Heading</h3> <h4>Fourth-level Heading</h4> <h5>Fifth-level Heading</h5> <h6>Sixth-level Heading</h6> <p>Finally! A Paragraph!</p> </body> </html>
Well that was pretty easy. Type the example into a new file and load it into your browser. Did you notice that the headings are shown in big, bold letters?
- Try writing your resume in HTML. Use a top level heading to say “My Resume”. Use second-level headings for the main sections of your resume (jobs, education, …). Use third-level headings to introduce each job and qualification.
