CSS Text

Welcome back! In this session, we're stepping into the world of CSS Text, where we'll explore how to style and enhance the appearance of text on your web pages.

Why use CSS Text?

CSS Text gives you control over the visual presentation of text, enhancing readability, aesthetics, and user experience. It allows you to customize the appearance of headings, paragraphs, and other text elements on your web pages.

Text Formatting Properties

With CSS Text, you can modify the formatting of your text using properties like font-weight, font-style, and text-align. These properties allow you to control the boldness, italicization, and alignment of your text, among other things.

Font Properties

CSS Text provides a wide range of font properties, such as font-family, font-size, and font-color. These properties enable you to specify the font face, size, and color of your text, giving you complete control over its appearance.

Color Properties

Color properties in CSS Text allow you to set the color of your text using hexadecimal codes, RGB values, or color names. You can use properties like color and background-color to change the text color and background color, respectively.

Text Alignment Properties

Text alignment properties, such as text-align and text-justify, enable you to control the horizontal alignment of your text. You can align text to the left, center, right, or justify it to fill the available space.

Text Decoration Properties

CSS Text offers text decoration properties like text-decoration, text-decoration-line, and text-decoration-color. These properties allow you to add underlines, overlines, or strikethroughs to your text, as well as customize their appearance.

Text Transformation Properties

Text transformation properties, such as text-transform and text-uppercase, enable you to change the capitalization of your text. You can capitalize all letters, lowercase all letters, or capitalize only the first letter of each word.

Text Shadow Property

The text-shadow property adds a shadow effect to your text. You can specify the color, offset, and blur radius of the shadow, giving your text a sense of depth and dimension.

Text Outline Property

The text-outline property creates an outline around your text. You can specify the color, width, and offset of the outline, adding emphasis or highlighting to your text.

Line Height and Letter Spacing

Line height and letter spacing properties, such as line-height and letter-spacing, allow you to control the vertical and horizontal spacing between lines of text and individual letters, respectively. This can improve readability and aesthetics.

Vertical Alignment

Vertical alignment properties, such as vertical-align, enable you to align text vertically within an element. You can align text to the top, middle, bottom, or baseline of the element.

Text Indentation

Text indentation properties, such as text-indent, allow you to create an indent at the beginning of each line of text. This is often used in paragraph styles to create a visually appealing effect.

Text Overflow

Text overflow properties, such as text-overflow and white-space, control how text behaves when it exceeds the available space. You can truncate text, add ellipsis, or wrap text to prevent overflow.
