Idea for <font> tag in html



  • Hi, The text in the style tag <style></style>has no color, whereas it does in a .css file. Can you do something in the next update. Thank you

    Npp is using scintilla as the component responsible for lexing the different languages, hence it is more likely
    that it will be available if it is added by scintilla.
    Nevertheless you are free to read and follow this to make a FR.



  • Hello,@Jerome-Red

    The font tag was brought in early in HTML’s life to allow designers to change the size, typeface and colour of their text. It proceeded to do more harm than good — for all sorts of reasons — but mainly because it is a hugely inefficient way to format text. CSS text formatting is vastly superior, but knowledge of these old-style techniques is still useful.

    I hope this information will be usefull for you.

    Thank you.

    What in the world does that have to do with Notepad++ or @Jerome-Red’s question? Jerome was asking, when using Notepad++ syntax highlighter for HTML, why the contents of the style tag in the HTML file he was editing were not syntax-highlighted as CSS. It had nothing to do with how to change the font or color of the rendered HTML, which would be an HTML/CSS question and asked in a different forum.
