Home Help: "font" CSS property

The "font" CSS Property


This shorthand property sets 'font-style', 'font-variant', 'font-weight', 'font-stretch', 'font-size', 'line-height', and 'font-family' at the same place in the style sheet.

Values for "font"

  • All font-related properties are first reset to their initial values, including 'font-stretch' and 'font-size-adjust'. Then, those properties that are given explicit values in the 'font' shorthand are set to those values.
