Physical Style Elements
HTML has a few tags for controlling the appearance and flow of text. There are three text markup elements for controlling the font of a text segment (a fourth is proposed), and three tags for controlling the flow of text.
These tags control the appearance the text they contain. They should be used within document structures such as paragraphs or tables.
- <B> will display text in BOLD
- <I> will display text in Italics
- <STRIKE> will display text with a line drawn through it
- <SUB> will display text as a subscript.
- <SUP> will display text as a superscript.
- <TT> will display text in a fixed typewriter-like font
- <U> will display underlined text underlined
- <BIG> will display text in a larger font.
- <FONT> lets you specify how much larger or smaller the contained text should be than the surrounding text. It requires a SIZE attribute:
<FONT SIZE=+3>Three times larger<FONT>
Thee times larger
- <SMALL> will display text in a smaller font.
