FONT SIZE SAMPLE
<title>First font size change</title>
<p style="font-size: 10px"> Some text for you to make tiny! </p>
<p style="font-size: 20px"> Some text for you to make normal
<p style="font-size: 40px"> Some text for you to make super
What is awesome about the style attribute is that we use it a lot! And we can use
it with many different tags, not just <p>.
Let’s now change the colours of our text in a heading .
To change the colour of text, simply add the style attribute in the opening tag,
then make the style equal to “color:blue”(or whatever colour you like)
For example: <h2 style =“color:red”>
What if you want to change the colour and the size of the text? Simple! Just add
a semi-colon between each bit.
For example: <h2 style=“color:green;font-size:12px”>
<title>Changing the colors!</title>

(or whatever colour you want).

ALIGNING THE TEXT

so, we again use the style attribute. And then we use "text-
