Ok Inger, Thanks for confusing me even more. :) Plain and simple if I want to include H1, H2, etc tags but don't want the text to show where do I put them (in a html box or the edit header) & what do I put so the text doesn't show up on the web site?

There is some confusion about the word 'header'. A html page has a part called 'head' or 'document head' where instructions for the browsers are tucked away, things that are not supposed to be seen on the actual page.

Then there is the page 'headline', the text that is indeed to be visible on the page. That is the one that needs to be styled as h1. The visible headline is NOT a part of the 'document head', but of the 'document body', or just 'body'. And to make it even more quirky, in html the part of the 'body' where the 'headline' is supposed to be, is defined as 'header'.

I have noticed many times here and in other connections where website building is concerned, that people use 'head', 'header' or 'heading' inaccurately. Maybe we ought to get our acts together and use the words correctly. I would sum it up like this:
head - invisible part of a html document with browser and search engine instructions
header - a location in the 'body' of the document where the 'headline', and maybe a banner or some graphics are supposed to display, at the top of a web page.
heading - the actual visible headline.


This goes against the advice of Website insight. Hiding text on your page is punishable by Google. Google calls this "Keyword Stuffing" and they will deduct points from you for that. I recommend simply placing the H1's and H2's on your website that are visible to your customers, rather than trying to hide them. :)

Robin,
Adam is quite right about hiding headlines denoted by any h tag.

But speaking of keywords: the 'document head' is supposed to contain something called metatags, one is for keywords, one is for description, and there even is a title tag (DON'T confuse that with the visible headline!). What you put into the keywords tag has to be words or phrases that you also have used in the page contents, and not too many, 6-8 is enough. The description tag can contain a little paragraph og text describing what the page contents are about. I said a LITTLE paragraph. ;)
What you have in those two tags will not be visible on the page, it will, however, help search engines to scan your site and serve it up to people who search for what you are offering.
The title tag that I mentioned, will display its contents on the browser tab at the top of your browser window, just like you have the CoffeeCup logo and some text there when you are reading this message. To get an actual logo to show up there is another story, though. Not difficult, but different.

All of the above is added into the 'head html'.

So, having said all this, I need to add that I'm a coder, so I don't use VSD. I know it is possible to add all this to a site built with VSD, but don't ask me exactly how. But there are other helpers around who can lead you by the hand to that. ;)

I added the two h1 and h2 tags later to the site after appraisals kept telling me that they were missing. I chose to make two of the main page headers the tags and I believe that I either added them in the add html section or put them in with the FTP editing.
