HTML Formatting

Formatting tags are used to change the format of text in the output. All the formatting tags have start tag and end tag. These elements affect only the presentation of a document and the markup is of no other use. You can also achieve a similar appearance using CSS.

Commonly Used Formatting Tags

  1. Bold: <b>

  2. Italics: <i>

  3. Important: <strong> (output is similar to bold)

  4. Emphasize: <em> (output is similar to italics)

  5. Subscript: <sub>

  6. Superscript: <sup>

  7. Computer Code: <code>

  8. Abbreviation: <abbr>

  9. Quote: <blockquote>

  10. Inline Quote: <q>

  11. Marked Text: <mark>

  12. Small Text: <small>

  13. Deleted Text: <del>

  14. Inserted Text: <ins>

The HTML <b> element defines bold text, without any extra importance. The HTML <strong> element defines strong text, with added semantic "strong" importance.

Horizontal Rule

The <hr> element creates a horizontal rule across the page. It is an empty element. This is frequently used to separate distinct sections of a page where a new heading is not appropriate.
