Chapter 15.  Formatting Text with Styles

Chapter 15. Formatting Text with Styles

Many Tags Deprecated

The W3 Consortium wants you to stop using the FONT tag and about 20 other tags and attributes that add formatting to text, lists, tables, and the rest of your Web page. Instead, they think you should consolidate all that formatting information in one step: the style. And while leaving your familiar tags behind may take some practice, you'll soon find that styles save you time and typing. For more about deprecated tags, see page 44.


Styles offer many more possibilities than HTML tags and extensions ever did. Now you can change the size, weight, slant, line height, foreground and background color, spacing, and alignment of text, decide whether it should be underlined, overlined, struck through, or blinking, and convert it to all uppercase, all lowercase, or small-caps.
