What was the “font” tag used for in HTML4?

Precisely so! In HTML4 we could use the font tag to specify the color, size, and face (style) of the text. But now we are supposed to do them with CSS using color, font-size, and font-family respectively. (font-weight is for thickness of the characters)

It was depreciated because the default character-set in HTML 4 is ISO- 8859 and was limited thus when html5 came utf-8 allowed many changes including css font tag equivalents plus extras
