Type Styles

We have already come across the \em command for changing typeface. Here is a full list of the available typefaces:


\sc   SMALL CAPS    \sc   SMALL CAPS   \rm 		 ROMAN 		 \it 		 ITALIC 		 \sc 		 SMALL CAPS    

\em EMPHATIC \sl SLANTED \tt TYPEWRITER
\bf BOLDFACE \sf SANS SERIF

Remember that these commands are used inside a pair of braces to limit the amount of text that they effect. In addition to the eight typeface commands, there are a set of commands that alter the size of the type. These commands are:


\tiny 		 \small 		 \large 		\huge  

\scriptsize \normalsize \Large \Huge
\footnotesize \LARGE
