Can someone settle an argument for me...?
I thought that the <font> tag is being made redundant in the W3C standard but I'm not entirely sure about this. We are in the process of making our intranet W3C-compliant and many areas of text are stylised in such a way that a class is applied to a <font> tag.
My understanding of W3C compliancy was to remove all instances of page formatting tags such as <font> and apply styles to <div>'s and <span>'s instead.Code:eg. <font class="my_style>text to formatted</font>
Any thoughts on this are welcome... even if I'm proven wrong!
