Chapter 7. Formatting Text > Inline Type Styles

7.3. Inline Type Styles

Most HTML text tags indicate style or structural information for inline elements (strings of characters within the flow of text). Inline style tags affect the appearance of the enclosed text without adding line breaks or extra space. Closing tags are required for inline style tags in order to turn "off" the style attribute.

HTML styles fall into two conceptual categories: logical (or "content-based") styles and physical styles. This distinction is purely intellectual and does not affect the way you use the tags in an HTML document. However, in the movement toward removing style information from the content revived by the introduction of style sheets, logical tags are the more "pure" way to go.
