# Re: [NTG-context] setuptyping

```Hi Alan,

```
the difference between both is that smalltype switches to the monospace font while small uses the default style (in most cases a serif font).

```Wolfgang,

There is also [style=small]. Is it preferable to use style=smalltype?

Also, there is [style=bigger], which is a bit inconsistent (with [style=small] rather than
"smaller"). I would have expected "style=big", especially as the value "big" is
already used in other contexts.

```To limit the smaller font to \starttyping it should be

\setuptyping [typing] [style=\ttxx]

or

\setuptyping [typing] [style=smalltype]

because \starttyping is a generated command like \startXML.

```Hi Hans,
Replace your two setuptyping lines with:

\setuptyping[style=\ttxx]
\definetyping[XML]
\setuptyping[XML][option=XML,style=italic]

nothing else needs to change

Best wishes,
Taco
