		{
		  font: italic small-caps bold 20px "Times New Roman", Times, serif;
		}
		.b
		{
		  font: italic 20px "Times New Roman", Times, serif;
		}
	</style>
  </head>
  <body>
	<p>This is a default font-style of paragraph element.</p>
	<p class="a">Lorem ipsum eius mod tempor inci didunt ut labore et dol ore magna aliqua. Non quam lacus suspen disse.</p>
	<p class="b">Lorem ipsum olutpat odio faci lisis mauris. Augue neque gra vida in ferm entum etq uam la.</p>

        }
        .b
        {
          font: italic 600 20px "Courier New";
        }
		.c
        {
          font: oblique all-small-caps lighter 30px  Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
        }
    </style>

  <body>
    <p>This is a default font-style of paragraph element.</p>
    <p class="a">Lorem ipsum por inci didunt ut la bore et dol ore bore magna aliqua. Non quam lacus suspen disse.</p>
    <p class="b">Lorem ipsum olutpat odio faci lisis mauris. Augue neque gra vida in ferm entum etq uam la.</p>
