Abstract
The fit of precision electroweak data to the minimal standard model current ly gives an upper limit on the Higgs boson mass of 170 GeV at 95% confidenc e. Nevertheless. it is often said that the Higgs boson could be much heavie r in more general models. In this paper, we critically review models that h ave been proposed in the literature that allow a heavy Higgs boson consiste nt with the precision electroweak constraints. All have unusual features, a nd all can be distinguished from the minimal standard model either by impro ved precision measurements or by other signatures accessible to next-genera tion colliders.
