1. Here you go

https://www.w3schools.com/tags/tag_font.asp


<font size="3" color="red">This is some text!</font>
<font size="2" color="blue">This is some text!</font>
<font face="verdana" color="green">This is some text!</font>

2. See my favorite HTML example website...

https://www.w3schools.com/tags/tag_font.asp

Note that CSS is used for that now-a-days, putting it in HTML is considered bad form.

3. The [font] tag no longer works here.

Using a style attribute in a [div] won't work either.

The Admins reduced the allowed HTML after the last hack of DU. I believe I have all the tags that work listed here:

If you really need something special, you could make an image and the post the picture - although that may produce varying results on mobile devices.

4. Thanks.. I wish the {font} tag DID work still

size and color was very useful for emphasis

5. I wish most of what used to work here still did.

They seemed to have used a chainsaw to fix a problem requiring a scalpel.

Perhaps we need to start threads in more visible forums requesting a specific html tag be reinstated and ask people to K&R if they agree? Maybe they could create custom [size] and [color] tags for the forum.
