The small() method creates a <small> HTML element that causes a string to be displayed in a small font.




The small method embeds a string in a <small> tag:


Example: Using small

The following example uses string methods to change the size of a string:

var worldString = "Hello, world";

console.log( worldString.small()     ); // <small>Hello, world</small>
console.log( worldString.big()       ); // <big>Hello, world</big>
console.log( worldString.fontsize(7) ); // <font size="7">Hello, world</fontsize>

With the object you can get the element's style attribute and manipulate it more generically, for example:

document.getElementById('yourElemId').style.fontSize = '0.7em'
