Definition from ISO/CD 10303-46:1992: The text style is a presentation style for annotation text.

NOTE Corresponding ISO 10303 name: text_style. Please refer to ISO/IS 10303-46:1994 for the final definition of the formal standard.

NOTE Corresponding CSS1 definitions are: Font properties (font-family, font-style, font-variant, font-weight, font-size), Color and background properties (color, background-color) and Text properties (word-spacing, letter-spacing, text-decoration, text-transform, text-align, text-indent, line-height).
