  • The FONT Property

Web authors have always wanted to have greater control over the formatting of font properties on Web pages. Netscape tried to oblige the Web authoring community by introducing the <FONT> tag in Netscape Navigator 1.0, which allowed authors to change the size of the displayed text by using the SIZE attribute. Microsoft added two new attributes, COLOR and FACE, with the release of Internet Explorer 1.0, the first of which was adopted within Netscape Navigator 2.0 and the latter in version 3.0. Despite the efforts by Netscape and Microsoft to improve the <FONT> tag (which still continues, as Netscape recently introduced POINT-SIZE and WEIGHT attributes to the <FONT> tag in Netscape Navigator 4.0), Web authors will find greater flexibility with the CSS FONT family of properties.
