Multiple font sizes in single .ASP Table cell

P: n/a
HI All :-)

I don't know if I will be able to do this type of formatting, but what I
need to do is have a table row where the text wraps (This is easy) the first
line of text is font size 10 pt and the second (wrapped text) is 6 pt. I
know how to create a style sheet to get all of my font one size or the
other, but does any one have any suggestions on how to do this?

Line 1: font size 10pt>Hi, My name is Coleen<font size 10 pt
Line 2: font size 6pt>I need this to be small like a footnote<font size 6pt

Both lines need to be in the SAME table row/cell...

TIA if any one can help, I really appreciate it :-)

Use span elements, as in

<td><span class="top">Line one</span><br/><span class="bottom">line two</span></td>

Well, I tried Span, it does NOT work with ASP .Net -- any other suggestions? I'm looking at RowSpan, but have never used it before. Do you have any links to examples of how this might work? Thanks for your help :-) Coleen

Use :first-line pseudo element in your style sheet. Unless of course it's
you who's wrapping the text, then just put the first line in a span or div
element and set the style on that...

I tried using Span, but you can not use a span element inside an ASP table row...if there is a way to do that, do you happen to have an example? Thanks for your help :-) Coleen
