1. Small tag used to alter text size


Small tag example

Description: Do not use the ‘small’ tag to alter text size. If the page is written in HTML5, this issue can be ignored.

Context: HTML tags should denote semantic meaning instead of just styling. In HTML5 it is acceptable to use the tag to denote things like disclaimers, caveats, legal restrictions, or copyrights, however the tag should not be used for subheaders.

How to fix it: Use semantic elements to indicate emphasis or structure, and CSS to handle styling.
