Part 3: Bold and Italics
- From Part 3. Your code so far from
Part 2 should look like
Text can be accented in many different ways. The first of these is BOLD.
Bold is symbolized by a <b> in front of the text you want bold, and a </b>
at the end of the area you want bold. Inserting text into your file that
is surrounded by the bold tag will accentuate the text. This text is
bold. This text is normal.
Text can be made to stand out by using ITALICS. This causes the
text to slant. The tag is a simple <i> in front of hte text that you want
italicized and a </i> at the end of the text you want italicized.
This text is in italics. This text is not.
Text can also be made to stand out by using the UNDERLINING text.
The tag for this is <u> </u> and is used similar to the bold and italics.
Many web designers do not use this tag often since the underline is
perceived on the web as a hyperlink.
This text is underlined. This text is not.
Often 2 or three of these are used together.
