An Eyelash in h4: Some Pointers on HTML Typography

Sample Headline in h1

compared to h2

A centered comment in h3 italics and regular

A DOCUMENT LINK IN h5 CAPS (NOTE UNDERLINING)

This <hr> horizontal rule was used to separate the heading from the body copy, which appears in the regular (default) Times Roman typeface used by most browers.

This double space was created using a <p> paragraph tag. Remember, HTML ignores any paragraphing, indenting or spacing not contained in tags. But you can force going to new line by using the <br> line break tag.
This is an example.

Use <strong>/<b> boldface, <em>/<i> italics and <code>/<tt> typewriter font to higlight characters.

DON'T OVER USE TYPOGRAPHIC EFFECTS OR USE CAPS EXCESSIVELY. YOUR TEXT MIGHT BECOME HARD TO READ AND MIGHT NOT BREAK EVENLY BETWEEN LINES. THIS PARAGRAPH IS CENTERED, ALL CAPS.

Instructions can be given using an <ol> ordered list tag

  1. This tag creates a number for every item you designate with an <li> tag.
  2. It's also possible to nest lists within one another. A <ul> unordered or bulleted list is useful to list non-sequential items.

This sentence is in <b><i> boldface italics to remind you about the importance of <A HREF="..."> Anchored Links.. Use them:
-- To refer users to another location within the same document, such as the top
-- To allow users to escape to your main home page, e.g. Hallahan Course Resources
-- To set up an index at the top of your document (as used at the top of this document). The link above above directs users here, where a <A NAME="..."> tag is imbedded in the text. (Notice how the dashes were used as an alternative treatment for a list. However, it was necessary to insert <br> line break tags before every double dash to create this effect.)

To solicit immediate feedback, incorporate <MAILTO:> commands.

Since we're being bold: E-mail me a message about how you like HTML.

Finally, don't overlook the value of graphics, which you can import into your document using the <IMG> tag. Don't you think that a graphic would have made this page more interesting?

Here's a final point in h6: It's always a good idea to include contact information, date of publication, copyright and other important notices as a footnote at the end of your document. But be sure that people can read your text if you use a headline this small.
