# 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
