Keep in mind that this is the way your web browser displays these tags. Other users' browsers may display them differently depending on many factors. It is "good HTML" (but rarely done) to use the logical styles over the physical styles. Keep in mind that the purpose of HTML is to define the structure of the content, not the layout. Logical styles: Describes the content contained between the tags, not just the way it appears. The appearance will be determined by the user's browser or a style sheet.
Most browsers display each level header in a different size with H1 being the largest. Headers appear on a line by themselves with a blank line above and below. No paragraph tags are needed with header tags, but < BR> tags may be used.
Text between the preformatted tags will be displayed exactly as it is typed, with all the spaces and lines as they are in the HTML file. Often used for "quick and dirty" marking up of a text file or for simple tables.
Physical styles describes the look of the content between the tags. Note that in HTML 4.0, FONT is deprecated. It may become obsolete in future versions, consider using style sheets instead. Color and size can be used separately or in combination. Some browsers do not support the FONT tag
