Web Page Design: Character-level Markup 01

Up until this point we have discussed the markup of block-level structures of a document. These are characteristically rendered with paragraph breaks after them. Now we will focus on character-level markup. These alter the appearance of text within the blocks.

There are two major types of character-level elements: Font-style elements and Phrase-style elements. The remainder we will lump together as miscellaneous.

First we will cover these Font-style elements:

FONT

TT
fixed width teletype font
I
italicize
B
make bold
U
underline
STRIKE (S)
strike through
BIG

SMALL

SUP

SUB
