String.prototype.small()

Deprecated
This feature has been removed from the Web standards. Though some browsers may still support it, it is in the process of being dropped. Do not use it in old or new projects. Pages or Web apps using it may break at any time.

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

Syntax

str.small()

Description

The small() method embeds a string in a <small> tag: "<small>str</small>".

Examples

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

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