Google Sites is your gateway to ultimate customization. With the ability to apply script and CSS, as well as choose from a wide range of Google fonts, your site will be a unique masterpiece. 

And if you're looking to add some creative flair to your text, there are a few tricks up our sleeve. Use the code font for a simple, yet effective way to display text within a box with a background color. Or, if you want to take it a step further, add some CSS code to create rounded rectangles with custom fonts and background images or colors.

I'll show you how to put your text in boxes.

Code font
