BIG HTML

HTML <big> Tag

The HTML <big> tag is not supported in HTML5. To increase the text font size, the HTML <big> tag was used. It always sets the font size one level bigger (small to medium, medium to large, etc.) than the base font size of the document or the surrounding text size. Now, CSS can be used instead of the HTML <big> tag to increase the font size.

Syntax:

<big>content</big>

Example:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<body>
<p>HELLO WORLD!!</p>
<p><big>HELLO WORLD!!</big></p>
</body>
</html>

Output:

Explanation:

In the above example, we have used the HTML <big> tag to set the font size of the second paragraph one level higher than the normal font size.

 

Example: Using the CSS property.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<style>  
.pclass{  
font-size: 20px;   
}  
</style> 
</head>
<body>
<p>HELLO WORLD!!</p>
<p class="pclass">HELLO WORLD!!</p>
</body>
</html>
