How do I make bold links, increase the size of text, etc. in a scroll box?

So, i used this code





to put 2 scroll boxes side by side.

and then i put this scroll box code in each of them

<div style="height:120px;width:250px;font:16px/26px Georgia, Garamond, Serif;overflow:scroll;">



<p style="font-family:verdana,arial,sans-serif;font-size:10px;">

and when i tried to make the letter bold using this code

<b>TEXT HERE</b>

when i tried to make the letters bigger using this code

<font size="3">TEXT HERE</font>

it didn't work.

and a lot of other things won't work when i put the codes into the scroll box code.

is there any other way i could do it?

    <div style="height:120px;width:250px;font:16p… Georgia, Garamond, Serif;overflow:scroll; font-weight:bold; size:18px;">

    The CSS of the DIV that "TEXT HERE" is defined in, appears to be forced to always be 16pixels (because of the "font: 16px..." in your CSS code).

    Try this:

       <div style="height: 120px; width: 250px; font-size: 16px, font-name: Georgia, Garamond, Serif; overflow: scroll;">

          <span style="font-weight: 900;">TEXT <span style="font-size: 300%;">HERE</span> </span>


    You can try it out more over here:

    The code above will change the text to have "TEXT HERE" be all bolded, but "HERE" to be 3 times as large as normal (that's what 300% means).

    Good luck!

    you should use css to change the style of text.

    to make bold you should add font-weight:bold

    to make bigger or smaller you should add font-size:12px; or whatever you need.

    it's even possible to put you text between span-tags and add css to this span tag.

    this should do the trick

    properly formidable is <b> WRITE right here <b/> and a similar for italics yet use a i istead of a b. unsure with regards to the others yet once you seek the internet for unfastened html help there ought to be an incredible style of help. desire this helped.
