05 - List of Properties and their Values- 01

   Selectors properties related to Text

1) Font: 

1. 1)  Property:  font-family
     Value:        Such as Times New Roman, Arial, or Verdana.

     The most commonly used are arial, verdana and times new roman but you can specify
     more than one font, separated by commas. The purpose of this is that if the user does not
     have the first font you specify, the browser will go through the list until it finds one it does

Note: if the name of a font is more than one word, it should be put in quotation marks, such as font-family: "Times New Roman".

1.2)  Property:  font-size
        Value:       12px or 2em

1.3) Property:  font-weight
       Value:       bold, normal

     This state’s whether the text is bold or not. In practice this usually only 
     works as font-weight: bold or font-weight: normal. Some browser use 
     bolder, lighter, 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700, 800 or 900, but 
     some browsers not, it's safer to stick with bold and normal.

1.4)  Property:  font-style
        Value:        Italic or normal
