In this post, we will be discussing some basics of CSS: Texts formatting. We will be covering properties such as font-size, font-family, color, and line-height. While this may not seem like a lot to worry about, mastering these basics can make your website design look a lot more professional.
What is CSS?
CSS is a style sheet language used for formatting, presentation, and layout of text on the web. It allows you to change the font, font size, color, line spacing, and other aspects of text in a document without having to write code.
You can use CSS to format paragraphs, headings, lists, blockquotes, and other types of content. You can also change the display of individual words or groups of words. CSS is relatively easy to learn and use, so you can create custom formatting styles quickly.
Element and Values
There are a few things you can do with text formatting using CSS. You can control the font, size, color, and alignment of text in an element. You can also add a text shadow, margin, or border to make your text look more polished. In this article, we’ll cover all of these methods.
Text Formatting in CSS
CSS provides a number of ways to format text, including setting the font family, size, and color; adjusting the letter-spacing, word-spacing, and line-height; and using line breaks and paragraph breaks.
The simplest way to format text is to use the text-align property: you can set it to left or right, justify (by using justify-content or justify-items), and even center the text. You can also use the white-space property to control how spaces are rendered in your text: if you want them to be rendered as normal characters, you can use single or double quotes (‘ ‘), but if you want them to be ignored (except between words), you can use an escape character (\).
If you need to create a multiline block of text, you can use the col-family and col-spans properties together. col-family sets the font family for all columns in a row, while col-spans defines how many columns wide that block should be. You can also use these properties together with column alignment (see below) to create neat looking tables.
How to apply Text Formatting in CSS?
When you are formatting text in CSS, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, use a style for all your text formatting. This will make it easier to apply the same formatting to many elements with just a few lines of code. Secondly, use specific font properties for your text formatting. This will allow you more control over the appearance of your text and make it easier to read. Lastly, use paragraph styles when necessary to control the layout and appearance of individual paragraphs.
