HTML <big> Tag

Not Supported in HTML5.

The <big> tag was used in HTML 4 to define bigger text.

What to Use Instead?


Specify different font-sizes for HTML elements (with CSS):

p.ex1 {
  font-size: 30px;
p.ex2 {
  font-size: 50px;

<p>This is a normal paragraph.</p>
<p class="ex1">This is a bigger paragraph.</p>
<p class="ex2">This is a much bigger paragraph.</p>
