Synopsis

<BIG>...</BIG>

End Tag: Required

The BIG element—one of several font style elements in HTML 4—renders its content in the next font size (in HTML’s 1 through 7 scale) larger than the previous body font size. If you nest BIG elements, the effects on the more nested elements are cumulative, with each nested level rendered one size larger than the next outer element. Default font size is dependent upon the browser, operating system, and user preferences settings. For more precise font size rendering, use style sheet rules.

Example

<P>This product is <BIG>new</BIG> and <BIG>improved</BIG>!</P>
