Using CSS to Create a Drop Capital Effect within a Web Page

You can use CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) Style Tags to create a drop capital effect within your web page.

If you would like to display the first letter of your paragraphs with a drop caps effect, place the following code within your HTML between your <HEAD> and </HEAD> tags.


Change the text indicated in red to your preferences.

The "dropcap" text specifies the name of the code. You can name it whatever you'd like. However, you must use the same name within your "p class" code below, as well.

Place the following code before your paragraph.

<p class="dropcap">Welcome

This is just one small example of how you can use CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) Style Tags within your web page. For additional information on CSS, visit the CSS Tutorial section.
