### 7.3. Using fonts in text

When you are writing a LaTeX document, appropriate fonts are normally chosen automatically by the (logical) markup tags used to structure the document. For example, the font attributes for a section heading, such as large size and bold weight, are defined by the document class and applied when a \section command is used, so that you seldom need to specify font attributes yourself.

However, occasionally it becomes necessary to specify font attributes directly. One common reason is the desire to change the overall font attributes, by choosing, for example, a different font family for the main text. This alteration often can be done by simply specifying an appropriate package (see Sections 7.6 and 7.7 for descriptions of such packages).
