HTML <font> Tag

Not Supported in HTML5.

The <font> tag was used in HTML 4 to specify the font face, font size, and color of text.

What to Use Instead?


Set the color of text (with CSS):

<p style="color:red" > This is a paragraph.</p>
<p style="color:blue" > This is another paragraph.</p>


Set the font of text (with CSS):

<p style="font-family:verdana" > This is a paragraph.</p>
<p style="font-family:'Courier New'">This is another paragraph.</p >


Set the size of text (with CSS):

<p style="font-size:30px" > This is a paragraph.</p>
<p style="font-size:11px">This is another paragraph.</p >
