In 14/14, the <nav>-tag suddenly appears in the code, without a proper introduction. Without the the page seems to be working fine. Can somebody explain?

HTML tags are not functional, but semantic. Their meaning can be found in the tagname. NAV says what its children represent, navigation links. It is a sectioning element for flow content; i.e., links.

Something to keep close by when learning HTML is the chapter on elements.

the NAV element

I am using Codeacademy to learn HTML. When in the module my font for my Codeacademy was reduced to the point that I cannot see the HTML. How can I increase the font in Codeacademy screens so I can read the code?

As far as I know, the LE is scalable so you can zoom the text size. If you find all the lessons to be similar, then in your browser you can set a default font size that is larger, to suit.
