How can we control the font size in CSS.

Thanks in advance!

Well I would use font-size : 2em; for instance. What are your issues?

Modified with example:

<html  xmlns="" xml:lang="en">
    <style type="text/css">
        div#myText {
            font-size: 1.5em;
            width : 200px;
            height : 50px;
            border: solid 5px green;
    <div id="myText" style="width:1000px; height:400px; border: solid 5px green">
    This is some text in a div tag

Look for font-size inside the style tag in the head section of the html.
End modification. Observe how the link from CSS to the div is made by the CSS selector div#myTxt.

You are wrong, my friend. div#myText is the correct CSS selector to make sure that only a div with the id of "myText" is styled with the according format. Please read up on CSS selectors:
when you have browsed to that page search for this E#myid.
Thanks for bearing with me.

Besides that OP didn't ask to format every tag with the same id with a given font-size. He just wanted to know how to do it at all and I gave him a working example.
