Join James Williamson for an in-depth discussion in this video Controlling typography, part of HTML Essential Training.
- [Instructor] Although there is simply no way to show…everything that CSS is capable of in a single chapter,…I do want to give you an idea of some of the options…that you have when styling elements on your page.…We're gonna start by exploring some of the things…you can control around typography.…So I have the type.htm file open from the 07_04,…and just to give you an idea of what's going on…on this page, we have a heading one at the top,…we have a couple of paragraphs, they go on to describe…some of the aspects of how HTML and CSS work together.…
So I advise you to kind of read through that text,…because I tried to go a little bit more in-depth…with some of the exercise files in terms of the text of it,…so read through them, there's some good stuff in there.…Okay, so above that, in the head of our document,…we can see that we already have the style element,…we see that we have the single rule set on the body element…that's setting the width of the body to 70%…and a margin to zero and auto,…which is kind of a weird selector.…
