html : force the fonts size for whole html page?


Hi,

I have a webpage that has different font sizes.

I need for my ebook a solution to read at a given size (medium).

I have a big html file to make it with a single font size.

Would you know if there is a html (basic code) trick to say at the beginning: please html use this given font size for whole html ?

thank you for any tips

Some CSS perhaps? Add something like this in the <head> section of your HTML:

Code:
<style type="text/css">
body {
   font-size: 12px;
}
</style>
Modify the font size to your needs.

thank you ... I will try this evening..

I start my html pages with:

Code:
  
  echo '<head>' > "$TARGETFILE"
  echo '<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />'  >>   "$TARGETFILE"

Yes, something like that. Just append the CSS to your $TARGETFILE before the closing </head> tag.

I have just tried with this at the beginning, but all fonts are not forced to a same single.
unfortunately

I have tried with explorer chromium, first. Seems not working, so highly probably wont work either with ebook reader.

Code:
<head>
<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />

<style type="text/css">
body {
   font-size: 12px;
}
</style>
</head>
...

Maybe try with !important:
Code:
<style type="text/css">
body {
   font-size: 12px !important;
}
</style>
