Default Is it correct to use html in labels?

Hi forum,
I'm hoping someone may be able to help here.

Where the home page reads 'Featured Products', or, 'Winter Season Featured Products', I want to change the font and size. Is it correct and preferred practice to simply enter the label as html, like this:


<font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><b><font size="4" color="#330000">Winter Season <font color="#CC0000" size="5">Featured</font> Products</font></b></font>


or, should this be done another way?


Instead of text, how would I enter an image?

Thanks in advance.

You can use html formatting in language variables although this is not a prefer way of doing it. If you or someone else want to change it later it is a pay to find out what exactly was done.

Also you should not use <font> tag - this has been deprecated for years. Instead use <span> and style it. Better yet use it with a class and add css rules for that class.

Thanks Steve. I was thinking that.

Not too sure how to go about that......


How about replacing text with a pic?

When adding css rules, do I edit skin/common_files/css?

<span class="wordX">Word X <span class="wordY">Word Y</span></span>

span.wordX {color:red;font-weigh:bold}
span.wordY{color:blue}

You can add the css in common_files or alt skin you use, either one should work.

Works like a charm - thanks!

I revised as follows, but I also wanted to change the font and maybe underline a word.

}
span.wordX {color:red;font-size: 26px}
span.wordY{color:#339900}


Adding 'arial' after 26px didn't work.
