Syntax:

<font attribute = "value"> Content </font>

Example: In this example, we have used the <font> tag with a font size as 5.

HTML

<html>
 
<body>
    <h2>GeeksforGeeks</h2>
     
    <!--Normal paragraph tag-->
     
<p>Hello Geeks!.</p>
 
     
    <!--font tag-->
    <font size="5"> Welcome to GeeksforGeeks </font>
</body>
 
</html>
