Chapter 3. Text Formatting > Changing the Font

Changing the Font

In order to make Web pages more universal, early versions of HTML did not allow the designer to specify a particular font. Since version 3.2, however, you can choose exactly what fonts you'd prefer to use. Of course, if the visitor does not have the desired fonts installed on their system, the text is rendered in the default font.

To change the font:

1.
Before the text to be changed, type < FONT FACE="fontname1, where fontname1 is your first choice of fonts. Type the complete name of the desired font, including the style.

2.
If desired, type, fontname2, where fontname2 is your second choice of fonts, should the user not have the first font installed on his system. Each successive font should be separated from the previous one by a comma.

3.
Repeat step 2 for each additional font choice.

4.
Type "> to complete the FONT tag.

5.
Type the text that should be displayed with the given font.

6.
Type </FONT>.
