I have assigned h tags to 3 lines of text.


<style>
h1 {font-size:12px;color:#000000;font-family:arial;font-style:bold;display:inline;}
h2 {font-size:11px;color:# 000000;font-family: arial;font-style:bold;display:inline;}
h6 {font-size:10px;color:# 000000;font-family: arial;font-style:bold;display:inline}
</style>

The 3 lines are formatted as the above 12 11 10 font size.

However, when I check the html of the text the sizes are different.
H1 is 16px
H2 is 15px
H6 is 13px

My site was on page 1 of Google but fell to page 4. Could this have contributed to the fall?
How to correct?

Hi Terry,

Can i have the link please ?

The actual size in which H tagged text is rendered is not related with SE ranking anyway.

Hi Terry,

The text as well as the class formatting should all be placed in a html box, otherwise it gets formatted by BV, as it happens in your page.

If you could use BVC 11.4 G, it has H tag styles that you can edit your self, to get the cleanest possible code.

G,
I have 11.4G installed on another OS. I will give it a go.
Are there any tuts for the H Tags?

Working on this...the default for an H1 tag is 24pt. Waaaaayyy too big.
I tried a custom style but it would default back to 24pt.

Hi, 1st go to Main menu>Format>Styles & hi-light the H1 item & edit to your choice of style. Then use the H1 tags as before.

Hi guys,
Quick question after reading this topic:
As navaldesign said above, do you think it's better (for SE's purposes) to build the entire site "to get the cleanest possible code", writing in the html box (and the size, colour of the fonts,etc..in them as well)? As oppose to click on the text 'A' symbol and do the writing?

Thanks!

...and also the fact that when we use the txt box for a H2, for example, to explain the text that is about to come, they are close to each other (when you see the page) - first picture. But when you see the 'Page Source' the H2 and its related text are not close to each other..and that's not good for the SE's (the info I've read somewhere) - picture 2

The H2 tag is: Tour New Zealand in Small Groups

Its certainly a lot cleaner using BV & gets the h1 tag right on the words.
Sample using BV:
<h1>Tour New Zealand in Small Groups<br>br></h1>
<font style="font-size:16px" color="#000000" face="Arial">Testing to see what the BV h1 tags look like on the html side and; is a lot cleaner than some of the old methods suggested.<br>
</font>

Hi Chris,
You mean using the text below in the html box, right? (and not using the 'A' button to write)

<h1>Tour New Zealand in Small Groups<br>br></h1>
<font style="font-size:16px" color="#000000" face="Arial">Testing to see what the BV h1 tags look like on the html side and; is a lot cleaner than some of the old methods suggested.<br>
</font>

Thanks!

CI,
Tried to do as you suggested but the text reverts to a 24pt headline.

G,
Tried your instructions in the html box. Text was not aligned nor was font size correct.
Went back to the old fashioned method.
I can show a test if you would like.

Hello Friends......

The <h1> to <h6> tags are used to define HTML headings.
<h1> defines the largest heading and <h6> defines the smallest heading.


Thanks

Hi! You mentioned you couldn't get it to work? Was just a sample page with some info with it working. Have added the html code to see on the above link.

OK, Thanks
I went to copy this info into WORD and save it into a file for BV.
Upon copying and pasting into word the text sizes reversed.

Hi Terry,

Why don't you use BV's styles ?

Define style h1 as you like it and assign it to the text you want. As simple as that.

Dodn't it work for you ?

I am apprehensive about 11.4G
I am using 10.2
I have 11.4G installed on Windows 7 on another drive on this computer.
10.2 gives me absolutely no "glitches"
I'll give it a try on one of my minor personal sites.

I take it that I should remove all instances of h-tag designation, use the Styles and then publish?

It's been a while since I visited this issue...but I finally got it thru my thick USMC head.
Is that "Leatherhead?.......nope...Leatherneck....
