Try it Yourself »

Definition and Usage

The font property sets or returns up to six separate font properties, in a shorthand form.

With this property, you can set/return the following (in this order):

  • font-style
  • font-variant
  • font-weight
  • font-size
  • line-height
  • font-family

The font-size and font-family are required. If one of the other values are missing, the default values will be inserted, if any.

The properties above can also be set with separate style properties. The use of separate properties is highly recommended for non-advanced authors for better controllability.
