I am helping a person work on a web page, and usually use CSS to make font changes. Unfortunately, the person has to get this out quickly and does not have time to learn CSS. They have FrontPage 2003 and are editing with it in design / visual mode. htey are trying to use the font face and size dropdowns to change text appearance.
I notice that I can change the text appearance by choosing the Style dropdown. But the Font face and Font size dropdowns do nothing. What can override using those two (older) methods for changing the font and size?
The top of the document reads this way in the tags ...
<html xmlns:v="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:vml" xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40">
Do these schemas block using the font tag?
Any insights are appreciated. When we have time, we'll switch this to CSs, but for now, what is preventing us from using the font face and size tags?
