HTML Problem

I am beginning to build my first website and have stumbled upon a curious problem. I have read multiple books on coding and have taken various HTML and CSS classes, however, for the life of me I can't seem to figure out why when i try to insert a search box, logo, or navigation into the site they appear at a humungous size. My coding appears to be correct and i've never been told about this issue. Does anybody know what could be the problem.

If thats your complete code ? Than you need to close HTML tags .

and your use text size "80" thats really odd. So change it to 14 or 16 for heading and normal font 11 or 12 maximum.
