The font-style property is used in CSS and certain HTML tags. It is used to select italic or oblique faces within the specified font-family.


  • normal - Keeps the font normal.
  • italic - Italicizes the font.
  • oblique - Obliques the font.

To apply this in HTML, use:

<span style="font-family:'Arial Black'; font-style:normal;">Normal font.</span>

That generates: Normal font.

This is an italic valued font style: Italic font.

This is an oblique valued font style: Oblique font.
