Use css shothand property to avoid more lines of code

CSS font shorthand rule

Normally we are styling font with CSS like the example below:

font-weight: bold;

font-style: italic;

font-variant: small-caps;

font-size: 1em;

line-height: 1.5em;

font-family: verdana,sans-serif

But no need of these much as lines, we can simply use CSS shorthand property,

font: bold italic small-caps 1em/1.5em verdana,sans-serif

Just a few of words of warning: This CSS shorthand version will only work if you're specifying both the font-size and the font-family. The font-family command must always be at the very end of this shorthand command, and font-size must come directly before this. Also, if you don't specify the font-weight, font-style, or font-variant then these values will automatically default to a value of normal, so do bear this in mind too.
