I would like to have top aligned text on \fancyhead[L] and \fancyhead[R].

First attemps: with parbox

For the moment I was able to obtain this (red dotted line just for explanation purpose):

enter image description here

With the following code using parbox:

{\Huge Huge size text}\\
normal size text\\
normal size text\\
{\Large Large size text}\\
{\small small size text}\\


The problem is that the text in \fancyhead[L] is not top aligned with the text in the \fancyhead[R].

The use of \fancyhead[L] and \fancyhead[R] or even parbox are not mandatory if it's possible to obtain the equivalent behaviour: two different text "boxes" wich can be put at left and right page sides respectively (and top aligned of course).

They are top aligned (on the baseline of the first row in each case). Put \vspace{0pt} as the first item in each \parbox[t] if you want the reference point to be on its top edge.
