9. Styling with Fonts and Colors: Expanding your Vocabulary

Chapter 9. Styling with Fonts and Colors: Expanding your Vocabulary

image with no caption

Your CSS language lessons are coming along nicely. You already have the basics of CSS down and you know how to create CSS rules to select and specify the style of an element. Now it’s time to build your vocabulary, and that means picking up some new properties and learning what they can do for you. In this chapter we’re going to work through some of the most common properties that affect the display of text. To do that, you’ll need to learn a few things about fonts and color. You’re going to see you don’t have to be stuck with the fonts everyone else uses, or the clunky sizes and styles the browser uses as the defaults for paragraphs and headings. You’re also going to see there is a lot more to color than meets the eye.
