HTMLFontElement.face

Obsolete
This feature is obsolete. Although it may still work in some browsers, its use is discouraged since it could be removed at any time. Try to avoid using it.

 

The obsolete HTMLFontElement.face property is a DOMString that reflects the face HTML attribute, containing a comma-separated list of one or more font names.

The document text, in the default style, is rendered as the first font face that the client's browser supports. If no font listed is installed on the local system, the browser typically defaults to the proportional or fixed-width font for that system.

The format of the string must follow one of the following HTML microsyntax:

Microsyntax Description Examples
List of one or more valid font family names A list of font names, that have to be present on the local system courier,verdana

Syntax

faceString = fontObj.face;
fontObj.face = faceString;

Examples

// Assumes there is <font id="f"> element in the HTML

var f = document.getElementById("f");
f.face = "arial";

Specifications

The <font> tag is not supported in HTML5 and as a result neither is <font>.face .
