As I try to figure out which font and font size would be best to use, one thing that I have done is look at other websites and when I see a font and font size that I think are good, I copy some of the text from the webpage that it is on and paste it into Word (I believe that it is Word 2002). After I see what the font size is, I can have an idea of what percentage to use for font-size when I am coding.
When pasting I have tried the different options available under Paste Special so that I can keep the source formatting, but when the text is pasted, it is usually in Times New Roman 12pt. It seems like Times New Roman 12pt is the default for pasted text in Microsoft Word when text is pasted into it from a webpage.
If something that I copy is Arial 14pt, for example, I have no way of knowing.
Is there something in copy and paste that I can do to keep the source formatting? Otherwise, how can I know the font and font size of the text that I copied?
I appreciate your help.
