Information Type Elements

Information type elements are used to markup textual structures within the body of the document. There are tags for emphasizing important sections of text, for definitions and citations, and other data. It is up to the browser to decide how to display these structures. That might not sound like a good idea, but consider users who can only view the text of your document. Their browser might ignore italics and bold tags, but it would use spacing, centering or other "tricks" to ensure that textual structures are offset.
