CSS Fonts

Under this section, we will see how to work with the font on our website. CSS Fonts have amazing properties such as changing the font family, making font italic or bold, font size, etc.

CSS font-style Property (Set Font Style)

Let’s first start with the font-style property under CSS Fonts. Set three values for font style i.e. normal, italic, and oblique.

CSS font-family property (Set Font Family)

Well, if you do not like the default font, then set the CSS fonts with font-family property. In CSS, you can add a specific font family such as Arial, or you can add a group of font families.

Set more than one font family in a comma-separated list, for example

So, you need to set the font-size to 1.125em, with the above calculations. Here’s the complete code,

Here’s the output,
