Hour 7. Formatting Text

It's easy—too easy, in fact—to begin thinking that a Web page is made up of three basic parts: text, images, and links. Although that's generally true, it tends to imply that text is for content, images are for show, and links are for action.

The facts are a little muddier than that. Text is first and foremost a vehicle for information, but when text is dressed up in a fancy font or cool color, it contributes both content and design—feeding two brain hemispheres for the price of one. Similarly, organizing text into a bulleted or numbered list affects both content and style.

In this hour, you step beyond paragraph properties and into fancy text formatting. At the end of the hour, you will be able to answer the following questions:

  • How do I make attractive lists?

  • How do I choose the font and size for text, as I would in a word processor?

  • Can I choose the color of text?
