I need help!

Recommended Posts

RESOLVED!!!!!

Hey, I'm trying to use PHP to control font properties by having PHP pull info from a DB that someone submitted. They go to one page, fill out a form with the font face, color, and weight, submit that to the DB, then index.php pulls the info from the DB. I've used the echo to verify that the info is being pulled from the DB, and it is. I've gotten the face and color to work with:

<font face=" <?php echo $font ?>" color= "<?php echo $color ?>" ><br /><?php echo $nicetext; ?><!--Whatever you want to put here!!!!!--></font>

but I don't know how to do the weight...bold, italic, etc...

Can anyone help with this???

Actually, you shouldn't use the <font> tag at all, but the <span> & </span> tags with the style="" option.
Read up on CSS for all the information.

Unless you want W3C to spank you!

P.S I noticed in your above code you had <?php $font ?> Don't forget that it needs to be <?php $font; ?> I assume that was just a post typo though.

If you have only one statement between the PHP tags "<? ?>", you don't need the terminating semi-colon since the "?>" closes the statement. See [a href=\"http://www.php.net/manual/en/language.basic-syntax.instruction-separation.php\" target=\"_blank\"]http://www.php.net/manual/en/language.basi...-separation.php[/a] for an explanation. This is one of the quirks in PHP along with not needing braces surrounding a statement block, if there is only one statement in the block. See [a href=\"http://ww.php.net/manual/en/language.control-structures.php\" target=\"_blank\"]http://ww.php.net/manual/en/language.control-structures.php[/a] for an explanation.
