Hello I am currently working in the Elements and Structure(Headings) portion of the Intro to HTML and the Run button won’t stop buffering. Is it because of an error I caused or is it possibly something else? Btw I have no error message.

Hey @board1023928696!

What kind of trouble are you having?

Why are there no other size heading elements within HTML?
For example: h7, or even bigger: h0.5

PS. I tried to write the heading elements with the correct syntax but the comment window actually took it for real HTML code!

Hello, @booga.

The <h1> through <h6> tags are to be used as headings. You can use other methods to make your own headings as big or small as you like. For example:
<h1>This is a heading</h1>
<p style="font-weight: bold; font-size: 50px>This looks like a heading only bigger</p>

This is a heading

Note: The above is a screen shot. Inline styling apparently isn't rendered by the Markdown used in the forums
There are many ways to manipulate text to look the way you want it to. The built-in headings are for quick use when the default style is all you need. You can also change the default style of the heading tags to suit your needs using CSS.

I notice that when I use h7 tag, for example, the text font defaults to a nonbold font of a certain size. Would that be different font depending on the developer I’m using?
