Text colour in a lesson

<span style="color:#54585A"> YOUR TEXT HERE </span>

Text alignment

<p style="text-align:center;">Centered paragraph.</p>

The following must be applied to the individual text fields within the lesson.

See the article on markdowns for more information.


Change Fonts

body {font-family: "Calibri", sans-serif; }

h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6 {font-family: "Calibri", sans-serif;}

p {font-family: "Calibri", sans-serif; }
  • This sets the font for content and headings to Calibri (without serif which is a style of text)
  • Custom fonts need to be hosted externally then imported.
  • h1, h2 etc refers to the headers. H1 is the biggest header, H2 is the second biggest etc.
