Fonts (Css tutorial)

Hello guys! good afternoon and welcome to this section of my tutorial, hope you have all learned alot so far from my tutorials? In this tutorial i want to talk about CSS Fonts.
This section teaches you how to set fonts of a content, available in a HTML element. You can set the following font properties of an element:

  • The font-family property is used to change the face of a font.
  • The font-style property is used to make a font italic or oblique.
  • The font-variant property is used to create a small-caps effect.
  • The font-weight property is used to increase or decrease how bold or light a font appears
  • The font-size property is used to increase or decrease the size of a font.
  • The font property is used as shorthand to specify a number of other font properties.
 Set the Font Family
Following is the example which shows how to set the font family of an element. Possible values could be any font family name.

<p  style="font-family: georgia, garamond;">
 This text is rendered in either georgia, garamond, or the default.
</p>

Set the Font Style
The following example shows how to set the font style of an element. Possible values are normal, italic and oblique.

<p  style="font-style: normal;">
 This text is rendered in normal style.
</p>

Set the Font Variant
The following example shows how to set the font variant of an element. Possible values are normal and small-caps.

<p  style="font-variant: small-caps;">
 This text is rendered as small caps.
</p>

Set the Font Weight
The following example shows how to set the font weight of an element. The font weight property provides the functionality to specify how bold a font should be.
Possible values could be normal, bold, bolder, lighter, 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700, 800, 900.

<p  style="font-weight: bold;">
 This font is bold.
</p>

<p  style="font-weight: bolder;">
 This font is bolder.
</p>

<p  style="font-weight: 700;">
 This font is 700 weight.
</p>

Set the Font Size
The following example shows how to set a font size of an element. The font size property is used to control the size of fonts. Possible values could be xx-small, x-small, small, medium, large, x-large, xx-large, smaller, larger, size in pixels or in %.

<p  style="font-size: 15px;">
 This font size is 15 pixels.
</p>

<p  style="font-size: small;">
 This font size is small.
</p>

<p  style="font-size: large;">
 This font size is large.
</p>

Set the Font Size Adjust
The following example shows how to set the font size adjust of an element. The property enables you to adjust the x-height to make fonts more legible. Possible values could be any number. 

<p  style="font-size-adjust: 0.80;">
 This text is using a font size adjust value.
</p>

Set the Font Stretch
The following example shows how to set the font stretch of an element. The property relies on the user's computer to have an expanded or condensed version of the font being used.

Possible values could be normal, wider, narrower, ultra-condensed, extra-condensed, condensed, semi-condensed, expanded, extra-expanded, ultra-expanded.

<p  style="font-stretch: expanded;">
 If this doesn't appear to work, it is likely that your computer doesn't have a condensed or expanded version of the font being used.
</p>

Shorthand Property
You can use the font property to set all the font properties at once. For example:

<p  style="font: italic  small-caps  bold  17px  georgia;">
 Applying all properties on text at once.
</p>
