Define Styles on the Web

Most popular word processors today have a feature called styles. They enable you to define the kinds of information that will appear in a document—such as headlines, body text, and pictures—and then give each of them its own specific formatting.

For example, you could establish that all body text in your document will be 12-point Courier New text that is indented .25 inches from the left margin. After you have set up this rule for body text, you can apply the style to all paragraphs that are part of the document's main body. They'll show up exactly as if you applied the font and formatting directly. Later, if you decide to pick a different font or font size, you can modify the body text style instead of changing the document itself. All body text will change accordingly.
