    Using CSS will allow you to use the options all across you website without
    having to set it in the text option you will just set it one thing in each
    item and the format will be there. This is really handy when you have a
    huge site with different texts formatted.

    Jed because you have more control over changing the elements on your page.

    Say you design 50 pages, not using css and your client then says 'Id
    like to see the text on the site bigger and in a different color'.

    Hell, now you are stuck. It means you have to open up 50 pages and
    change all of the font tags.

    If you use css you only need to change a couple of variables in a linked
    style sheet. It will updates all of the pages linked to that stylesheet,
    saving you hours of tedious work.

    Because font tags are deprecated. They still work in all (?) browsers,
    but if you like to go with the program, do CSS.

    You can edit *all* fonts by using a single file.

    You can control them better.

    You will learn to use CSS for other elements and achieve the same benefits.

    Besides, it's so much faster to pre-define a style with font size, color,
    position, etc. and then simply place the cursor at the beginning of a line
    and click the new style.
