    Hi Guys I have always been concerned that I might be using font styles that are not suitable for heading tags i.e. <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4>.

    What do you all use?

    Is there rule like using serif or sans serif etc

    Be great to know what people think as I think that typography is very important in web design.

    I would put my site header in <h1> then my news posts in <h2> – I rarely use much else.

    SEO wise, its good to use them in this way as google (other search engines are avalible) will be looking at it like that.

    Heres a good guide… … heat-sheet

    Fonts wise – if my Header tag is isnt turned into an image, then I like a clean font that is in one of the recomended families :) – other than that its down to your creative ideas…


    Personally I prefer to make my headings easy to read and simple, if I want them to look cool/eye catching I will use a graphic. For simple text I use simple cleans fonts usually, Calibri,Arial,Helvetica,Sans-Serif; I find this gives a nice outcome. It does vary on the content of the page though…


    Personally, I like to use Garamond with a normal font-weight for h# tags, but unfortunately it’s not a universal font.
