<font size=#> adjusts font size </font> returns font to default size
Before the release of Netscape Navigator 1.1, typographic options on the Web were limited to the one font and size that any given browser allowed. But the <font size> tag - allowed authors to vary font sizesand gave us one more tool to improve the readability of our pages.
The default font size "0" in Netscape and "2" in IE, can alter the font size but by inserting a specific numeral, such as <font size=5>, or a relative value, which changes the size in relation to the default.
So if you code your HTML page like this:
Unlike the headline tags the <font size> tags can combine different sized words on the same line.
You are not limited to choose font sizes, they can be as big as you'd like, but anything over 59 doesn't fit on your page without left to right scrolling. Below are some visual examples of font sizing.But even those would look different if the default value of the browser font size was changes by the viewer.
This is <font size=1>:Example
This is <font size=2>:Example
This is <font size=3>:Example
This is <font size=4>:Example
This is <font size=5>:Example
This is <font size=6>:Example
This is <font size=7>:Example
note that the <font size> tag doesn't work in all browsers (Mosaic, for
one, doesn't support it).
