4. Text Basics > Physical Style Tags

Physical Style Tags

Nine physical styles are provided by the current HTML and XHTML standards: bold, italic, monospaced, underlined, strikethrough, larger, smaller, superscripted, and subscripted text. Much to our relief, Netscape 6 has stopped supporting a tenth physical style, “blinking” text. All physical style tags require ending tags.

As we discuss physical tags in detail, keep in mind that they convey an acute styling for the immediate text. For more comprehensive, document-wide control of text display, use style sheets (see Chapter 8).
