HTML big: Main Tips

  • HTML <big> element manipulated font size HTML by making its content appear bigger than the surrounding text.
  • <big> increased the current text size HTML by one level (compared to the surrounding elements).
  • Browsers established limitations to how much can this element increase font size HTML.

How big Was Used

HTML <big> defined a bigger font size HTML.

Example
<p>The <big>big</big> tag is used to increase the current <big>font size.</big></p>

An answer to how to change font size HTML is the CSS font-size property. You should use it since HTML5 no longer supports the <big> element.

This code example reveals how to apply the font-size property to change font size HTML:

Example
<p>
  I want to buy ice-cream. <span class="bigger">I really 
  want to buy ice-cream!</span>
</p>
