Choosing Default Characteristics for Text

You can select the default font, size, and color for all the text on your page with the basefont tag. You can then change the characteristics of individual sections or words as described in later sections of this chapter.

1.
Right after the opening body tag, type <basefont.

2.
Type size=“n”, where n is a number from 1 to 7. The default is 3.

3.
If desired, type color=“color”, where color is a hex color or proper color name.

4.
If desired, type face=“fontname”, where fontname is the preferred font that should be used for the text.

5.
Type />.
