HTML Formatting Elements

HTML uses elements like <b> and <i> for formatting output, like bold or italic text.

These elements are called formatting elements.


HTML Bold Formatting

The HTML <b> element defines bold text, without any extra importance.

Example

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

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

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

Example

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

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

HTML Italic 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>


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 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) of 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>superscripte</sup> text.</p>
