Use CSS Style Sheets

Things to Avoid

  • If you wish to change the appearance of a header on a page, modify the H1, H2 tag, etc. rather than creating a new class, instead modify Heading 1 (H1). Many new web authors do not realize that tags can be modified
  • Although it is offered, avoid using the blink and underline. Blink is hard to read and underline looks like the text is a link
  • If you change the font of your text, remember that people looking at your website must have that font installed on their computer to view the text. Web safe fonts are: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif, Times New Roman, Courier New, Georgia, Verdana, and Geneva
