<H1> element

<H1> element is used to describe the top page title.

Because some browsers will default to the <h1> element is displayed as a large font, so there will be some web developers to use <h2> element instead of the <h1> element to display the top title. This will not have an impact on the reader, but will make those who try to "understand the page structure" search engines and other software confused.

Make sure that the <h1> for the topmost title, <h2> and <h3> for a lower level.

According to this template you can try to construct your page:

This is the main heading

Some initial text

This is a level 2 heading

This is some text. This is some text. This is some text.

This is a level 3 heading

This is some text. This is some text. This is some text.

This is a level 3 heading

This is some text. This is some text. This is some text.

If you do not like the default title font size, style, or you can use style sheets to change.
