Lesson 3.2

Text, Font, & CSS


Everyone uses text. And everyone writes with font. But you may not always pay attention to what “text” actually is or what “font” you’re actually using.

Text refers to any sequence of characters (letters, numbers, and symbols). If you write the word “fleek” in a text message, you used five characters to make the message.

Font refers to the way any text will be displayed. For example, if you open up a Microsoft Word document, there will automatically be a font size, a font style, and a font family. If you’re writing a paper in Word, you can simply change the size, the style, or the family as you wish.

The same is true for a web designer. With CSS, you can change the size of your font, the style of your font, and the family of your font. But that’s not all. You can add shadows to your text. You can space out the letters of a word. And of course, you can change the color of your text. This lesson is all about learning to style text and font with a separate CSS document.
