The font tag specifies the size, color and face of a font. The size can be specified from a value of 1 to 7. The value 1 is the smallest size and the value 7 is the biggest size. You can also change the size relatively by adding plus sign (+) or minus sign (-) in front of a number like -7 and +5. The color can be specified by color name or color code. The face can be specified by the face attribute. Specifying several faces, they should be separated by commas. f they are separated by commas or there isn't the first specified font face, a second font face separated by commas is used. If there isn't even the second font face and is a third font face separated by commas, the third font face is used. The browser's default font face is used if none of the ones are found. In Mac version of Internet Explorer 5, a english font face won't be reflected, unless the lang="en" attribute is specified.
Use the <basefont> tag to specify the font sizes of a full page.
It is recommended to use the <font> tag. Use style sheets.
