Set the Font Style

Set the Font Style

Use the font-style property to set the font style. Font style values may be normal, italic, or oblique. Shown below is font-style set to normal.

<p style="font-style:normal">Font Style set to normal.</p>

Font Style set to normal.

Because font-style set to normal is the default, you wouldn't normally use that value, except to override an inherited style other than normal.

Shown below is font-style set to italic.

<p style="font-style:italic">Font Style set to italic.</p>

Font Style set to italic.

Shown below is font-style set to oblique.

<p style="font-style:oblique">Font Style set to oblique</p>

Font Style set to oblique

"Oblique" means the font is slanted. The specified font family may not contain an oblique option, therefore, when font-style is set to oblique, it may default to italic.

To set a different font style for some text within a paragraph, place the text to be set to the different style within a <span> element, and set the font-style property of the span to the desired value. An example is shown below.

<p>To set a different font style for some text within a paragraph, 
<span style="font-style:italic;">place the text to be set to the
different style within a span element</span>, and set the font-style
property of the span to the desired value.</p>

Some webpage designers think everything should be done with CSS styles and the use of html tags is obsolete. I disagree because it's so easy to just place the the text to be set to italic within <i></i> tags. An example is shown below.

<p>To set a different font style for some text within a paragraph, 
<i>place the text to be set to the different style within a span element<i>,
and set the font-style property of the span to the desired value.</p>

The developers of html version 4 thought just using <i> for "italic" was too difficult to understand, so they added the <em> tag for "emphasis", which does exactly the same thing.
