Defining fonts?

HI:
I'm a total newby at this:

In order to have some consistency of fonts used on my web site, I wrote a ccs.
There are about 20 entries, all variations (bold; bold larger; colorerd; italic;
underlined etc) - you get the idea.

They are all using one font (Arial).

This means the phrase "Font Family: Arial;" is in each definition.

Is there a way whereby I can use a common code (such as Font Family: "font#1"
and then define this "font#1" on a separate line?

If so, could I define a number of them as "font#1, and the rest as "font#2".

That way, if I wanted to try and see what my site would loook like in a
different font, I would have to make one change only in the ccs file, rather
than about 20.

Perhaps, I'm asking for the impossible, but it's worth a try . . . .

Thanks!

body {
font-family: arial, sans-serif;
font-size: 100%; /* so users get their own preference */
}

...then delete all that stuff within your HTML. Setting your suggested
font in the CSS's body will cascade to all children of body. Don't
forget the generic fallback.

The key to this is applying a font property to a list of selectors in
one place and the other properties in another. That way you need
specify the font only once.

e.g.

..plum,.strawbe rry,.blackberry { font-family: Arial, sans-serif };
..plum { font-size: 1.2 em };

..strawberry,bl ackberry ( color: red; }

Is there a way to define a constant value for a color in a CSS declaration? I have numerous colors in different CSS elements, and if I make a change in color, I have to change all the reference to the color. For example: Instead of this: color: #306090 I would like to say: define MyShadeOfBlue = '#306090'
