Step 2: Edit the body tag for basic colors, fonts, ...
Add the following code to your css file:
font-family: verdana, arial, sans-serif;
With this bit of code we'll define all the properties of the body tag. Since all of the content is in the body tag, these settings will affect the entire page.
The background and font color (color), have been set to a dark grey.
The font family (font-family) has been set to verdana. If the computer used for viewing our website doesn't have the font "verdana", it will display our site in the font "arial". You can add more fonts to the list. The "sans-serif" is the generic type which will be used when no font you provided was available.
The font size (font-size) has been set to 12 pixels. This is an absolute value. If you want to edit other font-sizes (like the headers, paragraphs, menu items, ...) you can use the relative unit "em" in stead of "px". This way, if you want to resize your website, you'll only have to change the body font size.
The margin has been set to 0px for all four sides of the body tag. This is done to make sure the site will stick to the top of the window.
