HTML provides various elements to format text, making it easier to structure and present content on the web. Some of the most commonly used HTML formatting elements are as follows:

Headings: Headings are used to create titles or sub-titles in a document. There are six levels of headings, ranging from H1 to H6. H1 is the largest and most important heading, while H6 is the smallest.


<h1>This is an H1 heading</h1>
<h2>This is an H2 heading</h2>
<h3>This is an H3 heading</h3>
<h4>This is an H4 heading</h4>
<h5>This is an H5 heading</h5>
<h6>This is an H6 heading</h6>

Paragraphs: Paragraphs are used to define blocks of text. The <p> tag is used to define a paragraph in HTML.


<p>This is a paragraph of text.</p>
<p>This is another paragraph of text.</p>

Bold and italic text: To make text bold, the <strong> tag is used. To make text italic, the <em> tag is used.


<p>This is a <strong>bold</strong> text.</p>
<p>This is an <em>italic</em> text.</p>

Lists: Lists are used to display items in a specified order. There are two types of lists in HTML – unordered and ordered. Unordered lists are represented by the <ul> tag, while ordered lists are represented by the <ol> tag.


     <li>Item 1</li>
     <li>Item 2</li>
     <li>Item 3</li>

     <li>First item</li>
     <li>Second item</li>
     <li>Third item</li>

Links: Links are used to connect different pages or websites. The <a> tag is used to create a hyperlink in HTML.


<a href="" alt="description of what the link is pointing to">

Images: Images are used to display pictures on a web page. The <img> tag is used to insert an image in HTML.


<img src="image.jpg" alt="description of the image">

Horizontal rule: The <hr> tag is used to create a horizontal rule to separate content on a web page.



Preformatted text: The <pre> tag is used to display preformatted text, such as code snippets.
