In a web browser, font style is a CSS (custom style sheet) property used in HTML and ASP.NET programming, defining the font style for text.
There are four possible options for font style.
If font style is not specified, "normal" is the default option. "Inherit" is an option available in Internet Explorer 8 or later (not supported in prior versions) and specifies the style to be inherited from the parent element. Italic and oblique are slanted versions of the selected font.
