    <small> is the new <font>

    Simple, clean, effective

    The green, italicized font is almost impossible to read on the older of my LCDs; it's also very hard to read on a brand new one... The contrast between the green text and the white background is very low and the italics makes it even harder.

    There is one thing that lets your whole template down though -- presentational mark-up. You've got <small> tags everywhere! What the heck is the semantic value of <small>? There is none. The HTML 4.01 spec. clearly labels <small> as a presentational element on the same level as <b>, <i>, <tt> and <big>. Directly under the definition for <small> is this line:

    I take no responsibility for the above nonsense.

    You're right. It started as something for me, then became something else. If it's any consulation, the element <small> is styled with the CSS.

    if I am not mistaken <small> in HTML is the equivalent of in CSS ->

    eg body {font-size:small;}
    or in your case

    .smallerText {font-size:small}

    for IE5 you need eg a extra rule (could use a IE conditional) but in this case just add this to your stylesheet and change the <small>s into <span>s


    The code:

    PHP Code:
    span.smallerText {
        
    font-sizex-small/* IE5 Win */
          
    voice-family"\"}\""
          
    voice-familyinherit;
          
    font-sizesmall;
        }
    html>body span.smallerText /* be nice to Opera */
        
    font-sizesmall;
        } 
    that is it!

    This codesnippet I knew off but this construction is lent from -> http://simplebits.com
