HTML contains several elements, tags and attributes, to display text in multiple formats with different layouts.

Text align

The text alignment can be defined with the text-align:value; css property, in style. The 'value' can be: left, center, right (default is left).

<div style="text-align:center;"> This text is displayed in the center of the Div. </div>

Size, font and color of text

In the style attribute you can add CSS properties to control the type, size, and color of the text displayed in the browser.
- The typeface can be changed with the css font-family:'font_type'; property.

<div style="font-family:'Arial Black';">This is the Arial Black font.</div>

- The text size can be changed with the css font-size property.
<div style='font-size:20px;'>Font with 20px size</div>

- The text color can be changed with the css color property, with a value of type: '#RRGGBB' or 'color name'.
<div style='colo:r#00c000;'>Text with font color #00c000</div>

Bold, Italic, Underline and other elements

Elements often used to format text (called formatting tags): - Often <strong> renders as <b>, and <em> renders as <i>. But <strong> or <em> means that you want the text to be rendered in a way that the user understands as 'important'.
<b> bold </b>
<i> italic </i>
<u> underline </u>
<em> emphasized </em>
<strong> strong </strong>
