To present text in a large font.
Larger than normal font.
See general notes on rendering markup.
Text container, i.e.
any element that may contain text elements.
This includes most HTML elements. In particular,
text elements can be nested.
Notice that this disallows e.g. paragraph breaks.
That was a <BIG>big</BIG> mistake!
Avoid using BIG; use logical markup instead.
In particular, for emphasis use
EM or STRONG.
See general notes on text markup, which
provide additional examples.
It is unspecified what happens if BIG elements are nested;
it might or might not result in using a font which is larger than
you get with a single BIG.
The FONT element may provide more alternatives for
specifying different font sizes.
