How Do I Change Text Data Type?


Angela Bailey

In HTML, you can easily change the data type of text using various techniques. This tutorial will guide you through the different methods to accomplish this task.

Using the property

The property allows you to modify the inline style of an HTML element. To change the text data type, you can set the font-weight property to bold.

<p id="myParagraph">This is a paragraph.</p>
  var paragraph = document.getElementById("myParagraph"); = "bold";

This will make the text within the paragraph element appear in bold.

Using CSS classes

An alternative method is to use CSS classes to define the desired text data type. You can add a class to your HTML element and apply CSS styles accordingly.

  .bold-text {
    font-weight: bold;
<p>This is a <span class="bold-text">bold</span> word.</p>

The above code applies the .bold-text class to a element within a paragraph, making it appear in bold.

Using inline styling

You can also use inline styling directly within HTML tags to change the text data type. Inline styling takes priority over external stylesheets or internal styles defined in <style> tags.

<p>This is another <span style="font-weight: bold;">bold</span> word.</p>

In this example, the style attribute is added to the element to set the font-weight to bold.

Using CSS pseudo-classes

CSS pseudo-classes can be used to apply styles based on certain conditions. The :first-letter pseudo-class allows you to select and style the first letter of a text element.

  p::first-letter {
    font-weight: bold;
<p>This is a paragraph with its first letter in bold.</p>

The above CSS code selects the first letter of the paragraph and applies the font-weight: bold style.


In conclusion, there are several ways to change the text data type in HTML. You can use JavaScript with the property, CSS classes, inline styling, or even CSS pseudo-classes. Choose the method that best suits your needs and enhances your webpage’s appearance.
