Style Sheets and the STYLE attribute

HTML is moving toward CSS, a mechanism for specifying styles. We do not support the full complexity of this yet, but we do support a subset. Eventually we will support style sheets (again), but for the moment we support the case where the user puts in a <SPAN STYLE=spec> tag or a <DIV STYLE=spec> tag, and nothing else, we also only support a subset of what may be placed inside the spec.

Examples

changing the text color:

<SPAN STYLE="color: red">yellow text</SPAN>
red text

changing the font size:

<SPAN STYLE="font-size: larger">big text</SPAN> normal text
big text normal text
<SPAN STYLE="font-size: 18pt">18 point text</SPAN> normal
18 point text normal
<SPAN STYLE="font-size: 200%">very big text</SPAN> normal
very big text normal

changing the font style:

<SPAN STYLE="font-style: italic">italic text</SPAN> normal
italic text normal

changing the font weight:

<SPAN STYLE="font-weight: bold">bold text</SPAN> normal
bold text normal

changing the font family:

<SPAN STYLE="font-family: helvetica, san-serif">san-serif text</SPAN> normal
san-serif text normal

changing the all the font information:

<SPAN STYLE="font: bold oblique 14pt/16pt helvetica, san-serif">san-serif text</SPAN> normal
san-serif text normal

changing several things at once:

<SPAN STYLE="color: red; font-size: 1.5em">big red text</SPAN> normal
big red text normal

the <DIV> tag allows some other things:

<P>
Normal state
<DIV STYLE="margin-left: 1em; color: red; text-indent: 1em">
  Well this is fun, or funny asdf asdfsadf asdfasdf asdf asdf asdfas dfasdf
  asdf asdf asdf asdf asdf asdf asdf asdf asdf asdf asdf as dfa sdf asdf
  <P>
  Next Para
  <H1>
    Header
  </H1>
  <DIV STYLE="margin-left: 1em; margin-top: 2em; color: green">
    Nested thingy asdf asdf asd fasd fasd fasdf asdfasdfasdf asdf asdf asdf asdf
    asdf asdf asdf as dfas dfasdf
    <DIV STYLE="text-align: center">
      <P>Should be centered.
    </DIV>
  </DIV>
  <P>
  In outermost DIV
</DIV>
<P>
Normal state again

The CSS spec is far more complex than this, but this is what we support. We don't even support the line-height property.
