HTML Formating


HTML Formatting Elements In the previous chapter, you learned about HTML styling, using the HTML style attribute. HTML also defines special elements, for defining text with a special meaning.
HTML uses elements like <b> and <i> for formatting output, like bold or italic text. Formatting elements were designed to display special types of text:
Bold text Important text Italic text Emphasized text Marked text Small text Deleted text Inserted text Subscripts Superscripts
HTML Bold and Strong Formatting The HTML <b> element defines bold text, without any extra importance.


<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<body>

<p>This text is normal.</p>

<p><b>This text is bold.</b></p>

</body>
</html>

Output:
This text is normal.

This text is bold.

The HTML <strong> element defines strong text, with added semantic "strong" importance. Example

<p>This text is normal.</p> <p><strong>This text is strong</strong>.</p>

HTML Italic and Emphasized Formatting The HTML <i> element defines italic text, without any extra importance. Example

<p>This text is normal.</p>

<p><i>This text is italic</i>.</p>

The HTML <em> element defines emphasized text, with added semantic importance. Example

<p>This text is normal.</p>

<p><em>This text is emphasized</em>.</p> Note Browsers display <strong> as <b>, and <em> as <i>.
However, there is a difference in the meaning of these tags: <b> and <i> defines bold and italic text,
but <strong> and <em> means that the text is "important". HTML Small Formatting The HTML <small> element defines small text: Example

<h2>HTML <small>Small</small> Formatting</h2>

HTML Marked Formatting The HTML <mark> element defines marked or highlighted text: Example

<h2>HTML <mark>Marked</mark> Formatting</h2>

HTML Deleted Formatting The HTML <del> element defines deleted (removed) text. Example

<p>My favorite color is <del>blue</del> red.</p>

HTML Inserted Formatting The HTML <ins> element defines inserted (added) text. Example

<p>My favorite <ins>color</ins> is red.</p>

HTML Subscript Formatting The HTML <sub> element defines subscripted text. Example

<p>This is <sub>subscripted</sub> text.</p>

HTML Superscript Formatting The HTML <sup> element defines superscripted text. Example

<p>This is <sup>superscripted</sup> text.</p>
