    Change the font, color, and size to your liking!

    <span style="font-family:'arial'; color:black; font-size:12px;">TEXT HERE!</span>

    First of all, its only HTML. No such thing as HTLM!

    There are thousands of HTML tutorials on the internet. I suggest you read through this one...

    It would probably also help to learn CSS...

    Apart from some exceptions, HTML tags always have to be opened and close. They are hierarchical, so you can't 'overlap' them. Tags have to be nested within each other.



    ...would be ok, whereas...

    <div><p>hello</div></p> not ok.

    In newer specifications, i.e. XHTML, some tags can be self-closing. This means that you don't have to pair them up. An example of the IMG tag, which in XHTML can be written like...

    <img src="..." alt="..." />

    (without needing the closing </img> because you've 'self-closed' it with />)

    Note that the XHTML spec states you always need alt attributes for the IMG tag, hence why I included it.

    You used to change font styles using tags like...

    <font size="12pt"> hello </font>

    ...however this is now considered an old-fashioned and clumbsy way of doing things.

    Most webpages are styled with CSS (cascading stylesheets) nowadays, which separates the content from the design.

    Most page design is done using basic DIV and P tags, which are then styles using CSS.

    CSS can be targeted at specific object IDs, classes, or elements (or more complicated mixtures of the two).

    i.e. to style the element...

    <div id="test"> hello </div>

    You would use the CSS...

    #test {



    <div class="test"> hello </div>

    ...would be...

    .test {


    Or you could apply a style to all DIV elements...

    div {


    ...or all div elements in the class 'test'...

    div.test {


    I'm getting a bit carried away here!

    Basically, learn CSS. It will help...
