Chapter 4. Text Properties

Chapter 4. Text Properties

While your web design efforts may be largely focused on picking the right colors and getting the coolest look for your pages, when it comes right down to it, you'll probably spend most of your time worrying about where text will go and how it will look. This concern gave rise to HTML tags such as <FONT> and <CENTER>, which give you some measure of control over the appearance and placement of text.

Because of this fact, much of CSS is concerned with properties that affect text in one way or another. In CSS1, the properties are split up into two sections: "Text Properties" and "Font Properties." This chapter is devoted to explaining the former. We'll tackle fonts in Chapter 5—they're quite complicated in their own way and so deserve a chapter all their own.
