Changing Font Sizes


It is possible to change the size, type and colour of text on a web page. However, unlike the style feature, different browsers may display these font types in different ways.
The easiest way to change the size of font on a page is to use the Increase and Decrease Font buttons on the toolbar. These look like the examples on the right. Clicking these buttons will change the font from a minimum of 9 points to a maximum of 36 points. Examples of different sizes are shown below.

9 Point

12 Point

18 Point

24 Point

36 Point
It is also possible to adjust selected text using the Font… command on the Format menu (Shortcut keys Ctrl + Shift + F) . This opens a dialog box like the example on the right in which you can select the font colour, size, type and special effects.

The examples below show a number of different combinations of font features that can be used on a web page. However, these font will only display if your computer has the relevant fonts installed - otherwise the closest associated type will display in its place.
