Got a question, hope someone can answer... iPage web host & builder UK for small business? Thanks in advance for any response. Second question of mine... I am using this html to program my text:.

<font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif font color="" font size="">.

The problem is, that font size 1 is too small and font size 2 is too large- is there a way to get an in between?.

Thanks...

Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the right answer. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I find an good answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could answer your iPage question..

Comment #1

<font size=""> still works! I use it all the time..

Your problem: you have <font font size="">.

It needs to look like this:.

<font face="arial" color="blue" size="+4">.

Like that. FONT is the TAG, SIZE is a tag attribute..

Comment #2

Sure it still works, but it should no longer be used..

It's better to use CSS for many reasons...

Comment #3

Ah, and I always thought deprecated meant that it no longer worked. ok. well thanx!..

Comment #4

Codehelp.co.uk: deprecated tags.

Their definition:.

Older HTML tags and attributes that have been superseded by other more functional or flexible alternatives (whether as HTML or as CSS) are declared as deprecated in HTML4 by the W3C - the consortium that sets the HTML standards. Browsers should continue to support deprecated tags, but eventually these tags are likely to become obsolete and so future support cannot be guaranteed...

Ah, ok. so eventually the FONT tag will not work at all? it's like a gradual decline... soon HTML itself will be obsolete lol.....

Comment #6

Yeah.. morrowvasted.. a bit like the dinosaurs, right ??..

Comment #7

<font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif font color="" font size="">.

Look again, you have three or four errors in that code:.

Count the quotes. Only five. One is missing from the end of the.

Face.

Attribute..

The word.

Font.

Is duplicated. You must supply a value for.

Color.

And.

Size.

..

Run your HTML through:.

I was just showing you how I write the code, the " " were suppose to indicate that normally there would be a value there, for size and color, although for color my codes are usually codes not the names of the color. Example: "0000ff" not "blue"..

I appreciate all the feedback. When I sat down to put up this website, I didn't know how to do ANYTHING, it's all been through trial and error so I am sure I have made tons of mistakes.....

One more question- is there a code that will make a dot, in order to highlight different subjects instead of having to start a new paragraph? On my home page, I want to use it to separate different news articles and appearances, it would take up less room..

Thanks..
