Change Default Fonts

Hi there. This video, we're going to talk about the default font and changing it because by default it is black and it's times new roman. We want to change that for every tag that's on the site rather than doing it individually. Up until now we've been doing it per tags. H one is now Ariel and then the P tag is now a real. Let's just do it once for the whole site, it's pretty easy. The short version is just added font family to the body tag. Job done. Why is this video so long? It's because I want to talk about specificity as well. So hang around for that. Yeah, let's get going. Alright, so we've got our default font. It is times new Roman black and it is 16 points. That's the default. Okay, we want to change that. Okay, because what we did in the last project is every H1 we made aerial. Then we made the tag aerial. So we individually did it. It'd be great just to change them all by default. It's really easy. We use the body tag. Buddy tag is the whole thing on the page. In this tag he...

re, we need to say the font is family. It's going to be a real in this case we'll do fancy fonts in the next video but that now will be this the hitting. So we've got an H one over here. Where is he there? It is an H one. The P tag. They're all aerial and plus I want the default for the site to be a color of white. Okay, not wheat. So that that's what you need to do kind of the beginning of everything or beginning of the website is just throwing some of the kind of overall default stuff and then later on you can kind of override it. So let's say that I want to kind of talk about specificity again in CSS. Okay, because this is quite generic. It's at the top of the body tag, everything is in the body tag. So this is kind of very generic. So all you need to do is put something very specific. So like an H1 to say actually want the H1 to be a different size. So we're gonna go font font size even. Okay. And we're gonna pick like 80 pixels just because because the top actually we didn't say a size up here, did we? Let's say we want to change the color of it instead of the font size. We're gonna say we're going to use the font, we're going to use color Okay. Of man, the color of let's say just use the cool thing about this code is that because I've used these in the code earlier on, it's suggested them to me. So I'm going to use, I don't really want them, but you know what I mean? So I'm gonna make it black now. So at the top it said be white, but down here it said be black and because this is more specific. Body generic H one is a little bit more specific. It's kind of override it now when there's not a really clear specific nous to it. Okay so you've got to h once this ends up happening it seems dumb now when they're right next to each other but when you've got a really long CSS document or that you're using somebody else's site and you don't know where Somewhere in this code the H. one being turned made white or black or purple. Just can't work out where all you need to do is further down the cascade. So it's cascading style sheet. The browser reads it from the top to the bottom and if there's things that are equally specific then the last one wins. So down here if I say be red, okay this one will win because it's after this. So the top is being white like it's going through some like I don't know it's been told lots of things at the top it says be white, everyone be white and it says be black and then be red and the red will win because it's further down the list the H. One will win over the body tag every time. It doesn't matter where it is because it's more specific. Let's test that out. Let's grab the H1 Let's cut it so it's not down there anymore. It's just above everything. Here we go paste it in the wrong way of pasting paste it in. Save it and it should still be read. Okay, so it's a mixture of the flow. The cascade that can be troubling sometimes because you're like, you're throwing things in everywhere and you're like, why is it this? I've told it to be white because it's the last thing in the cascade. So it's a mixture of the flow. Okay? The cascade the waterfall. Okay, coming down two more and then a mixture of specificity. Okay. It's a hard word to say that one. So I'm going to get rid of this red and I'm going to change the color back to white and just leave the font size there. Alright, let's get into the next video where we start adding some fancy fonts because we're all tired of you, Ariel, it's time to go and I'll see you in the next video.
