Note: If you don't see one or more of the above
fonts, then you probably do not have that font installed or your browser probably
doesn't support the extended fonts.
A word on fonts: Now that CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) is supported by almost all web browsers, you can often style a whole page with a font or style each section of a page with different fonts without using the <font> tag. CSS is definitely worth learning after you know the basics of HTML.
I found an excellent site with a list of all of the fonts commonly available now (there are more than listed above.) Click here to view this site in a new window. (ampsoft.net)
You can change the color of the text by setting the COLOR="font_color" attribute in the <FONT> tag. The Color is usually set by using the hexadecimal system (#000000 black to #FFFFFF white) but can also be set in newer browsers by using the simple word of the color. (Red for Red, Blue for Blue, etc.)
Example of Text Color...
<font color="Blue">Hey I'm Blue!</font>
Hey I'm blue!
<font size="+2" face="Impact" color="Green">Hey I'm green and in Impact Font!</font>
Hey I'm green and in Impact Font!
<font color="Red">Hey I'm red!</font>
Hey I'm red!
In the Box below, type the following HTML code, then click "Check it Out!" The HTML document you made will be displayed in your browser. You may wish to change the words within the tags just to try it out.
Try typing this:
<head><title>Fonts and Colors Are Cool</title>
<font color="Yellow" face="Arial">Hey I'm Yellow Text... Change my color!</font><br>
<font size="+2" color="purple">Hey I'm Purple Change My Color!</font><br>
