CSS Font Property

The CSS Font Property

To shorten the code, it is also possible to specify all the individual font properties in one property.

The font property is a shorthand property for:

  • font-style
  • font-variant
  • font-weight
  • font-size/line-height
  • font-family

Note: The font-size and font-family values are required. If one of the other values is missing, their default value are used.


Use font to set several font properties in one declaration:

p.a {
  font: 20px Arial, sans-serif;

p.b {
  font: italic small-caps bold 12px/30px Georgia, serif;
