The "big" element makes the text font size one size bigger based on the old HTML font sizes 1 through 7, up to the browser's maximum font size. Because this element was purely presentational, it was removed from HTML5. Use CSS instead, like "font-size: larger".
Attributes for "big"
- Do not use the "big" element as a presentational element. Use style sheets to control layout and presentation. Use HTML elements only for content and structure and not for layout and presentation. For example, use the "em" and "strong" elements only for structural emphasis.
