HTML tags | small

It is used to represent separate comments or fine print in a text, such as copyright or legal texts, regardless of its visual style.

Typically it is rendered with a font one point smaller, such as small or x-small.

Although <small>, like <b> and <i>, may appear to bypass the principle of separation between structure and content, all three are valid elements in HTML5. The developer has to decide when to use <small> or when to achieve the same effect with CSS.

  • Type: inline
  • Self-closing: No
  • Semantic value: No
