H1 is for heading. The lower the number after the letter H, the larger your font will be, such as H1, H2, H3, and so on.. H1 can be an alternate for using the tag FONT SIZE. I don't use Heading tag, I always use the FONT SIZE tag. It's more accurate. So I suggest that you also use FONT SIZE tag rather than H1.
