parses the list of font names, one after the other, until it matches one
with a font name supported by the user's system. If none matches, the
text display defaults to the font style the user set in the browser's pref-
erences. For example:
This text is in the default font. But,
<font face="Braggadocio, Machine, Zapf Dingbats">
heaven only knows</font>
what font face is this one?
If the browser user has the Braggadocio, Machine, or none of the listed
font typefaces installed in her system, she will be able to read the "heav-
en only knows" message in the respective or default font style. Other-
wise, the message may be garbled, because the Zapf Dingbats font con-
tains symbols, not letters. Of course, the alternative is true, too; you
may intend that the message be a symbol-encoded secret. The dir and lang attributes
The dir attribute lets you advise the browser in which direction the text
within the tag should be displayed, and lang lets you specify the lan-
guage used for the tag's contents. [ The dir attribute, ] [ The lang
attribute, ] The class, id, style, and title attributes
You can associate additional display rules for the <font> tag using
stylesheets. You can apply the rules to the <font> tag using either the
style or class attribute. [ Inline Styles: The style Attribute, 8.1.1 ] [ Style
Classes, 8.3 ]
You also can assign a unique ID to the <font> tag, as well as a less
rigorous title, using the respective attribute and accompanying quote-
