Hi,
How can I use the same font for the entire page?
Please do not tell me to use a font tag, and then put all the texts inside this tag.  I think there should be a more formal way to do this.

Thanks in advance.

Try this > right after the body tag <BODY>insert your font tag (e.g. <FONT FACE="ARIAL">

Now go near the end of the html document now insert </FONT> just before the </BODY> tag.

Ok sorry that is just what you asked me not to do!

You should check out CSS or Cascading Style Sheets.  There are several programs out there that can automate the process for you.  I use HOTDOG.  You could download a trial version at www.sausage.com  I didn't say it would be easy.

in your head put <LINK HREF="yourcss.css" TYPE="text/css" REL="STYLESHEET>

make a normal text file in notepad called yourcss.css.

in it, you can eventually add a bunch of cool elements to your page but for what you asked, do this
type

..myfont {font-family: Arial; font-size: 12pt; font-weight: 500; color: red}

save it.
back to your html doc

change your body tag to include class like this...
<BODY CLASS="myfont" BGCOLOR....etc..etc.>

that will do exactly what you want.

You can overide it with the font tag inside the html doc.

There ya go

I don't think download of Hotdog is an easy job.  The answer from Bob Bonham is what I actually want.
