in reply to My favorite HTML font style tag is...

I voted for <font> for two reasons:

  1. I don't care for serif fonts, and I can use it to specify sans-serif ones.

  2. I know <font> is considered "bad," but my knowledge of HTML is only current up until the time I got out of school and got my "real job" programming. :)

Well, that's not entirely true. I have learned just enough CSS to rip off, er, borrow some from other people's pages.

I remember the first time I saw a page that changed the default font. It took me 15 minutes to read the source and rush to update all my pages.
