    Exclamation Dumb Moment...someone please help!

    Ok, I've been using FrontPage for a long long time. I finally got away from it and have gone back to wonderful Notepad. The problem is, I'm having problems with the <SIZE> tag. I am not totally sure what I'm doing wrong but the font is not wanting to go down to a 10p size. The code I have been using is:

    <FONT FACE="VERDANA" SIZE="1">

    I'm not even a blonde and I'm having blonde moments. PLEASE HELP!!!

    My choice would be to use CSS for this. The font-tag is depriated in HTML 4.0, but it still works.

    If you don't know CSS, take a look at some articles on the network. For now, I think <FONT FACE="Verdana" SIZE="10px"> should do as well.

    Thank you sooooo much. I thought it worked without the px. This is how long I've been away from raw HTML.

    NOTE: I believe the <FONT> tag, while supported in many browsers, is unsupported by the W3C as per the HTML 4.0 specification. They may have changed it back, but I don't think they did.

    I would also recommend using CSS. FrontPage, when used long enough, does kind of mess up your coding practices.

    Hope this helped. 'Till next time..

    Yeah, I'm familiar with CSS, so I might just end up going with that towards the end. That is, once I have the page all up and ready to go. Thanks again everyone!

    Just change it to a <span> tag. The effect will be the same and you will be validated.

    Ditto. It's always better to use valid HTML mark-up instead of depreciated mark-up. Good luck.

    I don't disagree..might as well use CSS at this point, but I thought that if your doc type was transitional, font tags would validate, even though deprecated.

    you can do this with CSS as well I think, but I'm unsure exactly how.

    There is also </font> but the best way is to use CSS, find on the web something about this.

    In CSS you can use P {text-indent: 0.25in;} to indent the first line of your paragraph text. This example will make the first line indent a quarter inch.

    Or you could just do this:

    <style>

    font {size: 10px; color: #000000}

    </style>

    <font>Hey this is my text</font>

    Or you could do this if you liked:

    <style>

    #font {size: 10px; color: #000000}

    </style>

    <font id=font>Hey this is my text</font>

    A bit of CSS for ya

    It would work but you might as well do the right thing from the start and use <span> tags
