HTML Tutorial - Drawing Lines, SUB and SUP Tags
(Page 11 of 12 )


You can draw a Horizontal line by making use of <HR> tag. Its attributes include bgcolor and size. Listing 27 shows its usage:

Listing 27

<HR bgcolor = “yellow” size = “10”>
Using Address tag

Suppose, if you want to give your contact information on a web page, you can make use of <ADDRESS></ADDRESS> tag. It displays the texts in its own font. Hence, there is no need for you to format the texts separately.

Listing 28

<ADDRESS>Microsoft Inc, Washington, USA</ADDRESS>

Using <SUB> tag

This tag stands for subscript. The basic functionality of this tag is that it lowers the texts between the tag.

Listing 29


Using <SUP> tag

This tag stands for superscript and it raises the texts between the tag as shown in Listing 30. 

Listing 30

2<SUP>3</SUP> = 8

Applying Fonts

You can change the appearance of your text using <FONT> tag. Its attributes are face, size and color. Face attribute accepts font names like Arial, Courier, Verdana and etc. Size accepts values from 1 to 7 while color specifies the font color.

Listing 31

<FONT face = “Verdana” size = “3” color = “blue”>
This text will display in blue color
