HTML <big> Tag


Not Supported in HTML5.

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


What to Use Instead?

Example

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

<html>
<head>
<style>
p.ex1 {
  font-size: 30px;
}
p.ex2 {
  font-size: 50px;
}
</style>
</head>
<body>

<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>

</body>
</html>
