The FONT tag is used to indicate font styles (text formatting) for content on your web page. It can be used to change the font face (family), size or color as well as many other styles using the inline STYLE attribute.

You can create combinations of font tags each nested one inside the other. Font formats are combined in some cases and overriden in others. It is a good idea to experiment with the FONT tag to understand all it's capabilities.
