Gentona Medium is used for page headers.
|HEADING 1||<h1></h1>||Use to start major sections on our web page.|
|HEADING 2||<h2></h2>||Should precede a Heading 1. Since the site title is Heading 1,
Heading 2 can be used as the first heading on a web page.

|HEADING 4||<h4></h4>||Should precede a Heading 4|
|HEADING 5||<h5></h5>||Should precede a Heading 5|

Gentona Light is used for body copy.
|BODY COPY OR BODY TEXT||<p></p>||You can bold, emphasize, or underline the body copy.|
Here is a standard link.
|Standard Link||<p><a href="#">Some Link</a>.
|It appears bold when active, and an underline is added on hover.|
There are three list styles. You can use special CSS classes on list tags to change the look of bulleted lists (linked and unlinked).
Regular circular bulleted list.
|ORDERED LIST||<ol><li></li></ol>||Numbered list.|
|UNORDERED LIST WITH BLUE SQUARES||<ul class="blue-arrow-list"><li></li></ul>||We know it says arrow list, but it will change the circular bullets to squares. To get the look, add class="blue-arrow-list" inside the opening <ul> tag.|
There are two special CSS classes to use for viewing tables on mobile devices.
Creates a vertically stacked table on cellphones from your horizontal desktop table.
|STACK||<table class="stack"></table>||MANDATORY FOR ALL TABLES FOR MOBILE VIEWING.|
For large data tables where stack is not applicable, use the scroll function. Then, users have the ability to scroll large tables when viewing on a cellphone.
|SCROLL||<div class="table-scroll"><table></table></div>||MANDATORY FOR ALL LARGE TABLES FOR MOBILE VIEWING.|
Here is a basic table and you can use any of the styles above inside tables: Headings, lists, paragraphs, and links.
|Column 1||Column 2||Column 3|
|Row 1||Some text||Some text|
|Row 2||Some text||Some text|
You can use special CSS classes on images, to float images left or right within a page. See how to float images.
You can use special CSS classes on some text and elements for centering.
|CENTER||<p class="text-center"></p>||Center text and buttons within blocks. Using this class is preferred over using the Center button on the T4 editor.|
You can use special CSS classes on paragraphs to create blockquotes.
Here is a blockquote.
|BLOCKQUOTE||<blockquote></blockquote>||Emphasize certain text.|
There are three sidebar styles. For sidebars, we prefer that you use the following special CSS classes and add to blocks.
|ADD A RIGHT-SIDEBAR||<div class="gray-vertical-border"></div>||
Adds a border for a right sidebar menu that contains large text.
|ADD A RIGHT-SIDEBAR WITH SMALL TEXT||<div class="gray-vertical-border" id="county-right-sidebar"></div>||Adds a border for a right sidebar menu that contains small text.|
|ADD A LEFT-SIDEBAR||<div class="gray-vertical-border2"></div>||Adds a border for a left sidebar menu that contains large text.|
It is preferable to use a Twitter embed, which is more stable across browsers. You can add Twitter embed code to any block.
IFAS pages only track plays, pauses, and stops on video embeds. For videos, we prefer that you use one of two video content pieces you can automatically add to pages by clicking the green Create Content button. Then, you will NOT need to use the below embed code. The following special CSS classes will create a video embed that works on a mobile phone.
|VIDEOS||<div class="flex-video widescreen responsive-embed"><iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/RDdbJxHYnKM" width="560" height="315"></iframe></div>||Use content pieces to easily add videos to webpages. Or, embed this code in a block .|
