Basic Knowledge of HTML Text

HTML Tutorials

I've noticed some people have no idea how to do anything... I was one of those people until I decided to look at how things got in the place that they were. Basically all website stuff is trial and error until you get it right. I'm just going to help a bit and give some easy basic things to do. They might not work all the time on different web browsers, but they work MOST of the time.


First, I'm going to start out with text.

To make text bigger, use this code, and put the number of how big you want the text where the # symbols are.
<font size\"###\">Your text here.</font>

To make text colorful use this code, and put the color you want where it says color.
<font color=\"color\">Your text here.</font>

To make text into a different font, use this code and put the font where it says font. Just warning you now, not all fonts work in all browsers.
<font face=\"font\">Your text here.</font>

If you want...
·Color and font...
<font color=\"color\" face=\"font\">Your text here.</font>

·Color and size...
<font color=\"color\" size=\"###\">Your text here.</font>

·Font and size...
<font face=\"font\" size=\"###\">Your text here.</font>

·Color, font, and size...
<font color=\"color\" face=\"font\" size=\"###\">Your text here.</font>
