The <font> tag plays an important role in the web page to create an attractive and readable web page. The font tag is used to change the color, size, and style of a text. The base font tag is used to set all the text to the same size, color and face.

The font tag has basically three attributes which are given below:

  • Size
  • Face/Type
  • Color

font Size: This attribute is used to adjust the size of the text in the HTML document using font tag with size attribute. The range of size of the font in HTML is from 1 to 7 and the default size is 3.

Example:




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
    <head>
        <title>HTML font tag</title>
    </head>
      
    <body>
        <font size = "1">GeeksforGeeks!</font><br />
        <font size = "2">GeeksforGeeks!</font><br />
        <font size = "3">GeeksforGeeks!</font><br />
        <font size = "4">GeeksforGeeks!</font><br />
        <font size = "5">GeeksforGeeks!</font><br />
        <font size = "6">GeeksforGeeks!</font><br />
        <font size = "7">GeeksforGeeks!</font>
    </body>
</html>                    

Output:



GeeksforGeeks!! = "1"
GeeksforGeeks!! = "2"
GeeksforGeeks!! = "3"
GeeksforGeeks!! = "4"
GeeksforGeeks!! = "5"
GeeksforGeeks!! = "6"
GeeksforGeeks!! = "7"

Font Type: Font type can be set by using face attribute with font tag in HTML document. But the fonts used by the user needs to be installed in the system first.
Example:




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
    <head>
        <title>Example of Font Type</title>
    </head>
      
    <body>
        <font face = "Times New Roman" size = "6">
                             GeeksforGeeks!!</font><br />
        <font face = "Verdana" size = "6">
                             GeeksforGeeks!!</font><br />
        <font face = "Comic sans MS" size =" 6">
                             GeeksforGeeks!!</font><br />
        <font face = "WildWest" size = "6">
                             GeeksforGeeks!!</font><br />
        <font face = "Bedrock" size = "6">
                             GeeksforGeeks!!</font><br />
    </body>
</html>                    

Output:

 GeeksforGeeks!!
GeeksforGeeks!!
GeeksforGeeks!!
GeeksforGeeks!!
GeeksforGeeks!!

Font Color: Font color is used to set the text color using font tag with color attribute in HTML document. Color can be specify either with its name or with its hex code.

        <style>
            body {
                font-size:40px;
                font-weight:bold;
                text-align:center;
            }
        </style>
    </head>
    <body>
        <font color = "#009900">GeeksforGeeks</font><br />
