Combining <font> tag attributes

When you have to control size, color or face of a font at the same time, you could use separate font tags as:

<font size="5">
<font color="yellow">
<font face="arial">
Some text
</font>
</font>
</font>

Specifying individual attribute with separate <font> tags is insufficient as the browser has to process these extra tags. Additionally, it is confusing and long. Instead of individually specifying the size, color, or face of a font, you can combine all three into one <font> tag:

<font size="5" color="yellow" face="arial">Some text</font>.

That outputs:

Some text

Conclusion

The <font> tag provides limited control over changing the appearance of the text. Web authors have more flexibility in controlling the appearance of the text with Cascaded Style Sheets.
