Font Attributes

You also can work with plenty of font style attributes—see Table 21.6 for a sample.

Table 21.6. Font Style Attributes

  This is a shorthand attribute that enables you to set the font-style, font-variant, font-weight, font-size, line-height, and font-family attributes all at once. You specify values for those attributes in that order, and without commas.
