Character Formatting

There is a range of character formatting facilities in HTML. These always involve using paired tags which surround the text to be formatted. The most commonly used ones are for bold, italic, and a typewriter font (these effects can also be combined):

this point is <B>important</B> this point is important
<I>Web Publishing for Genealogy</I> Computers in Genealogy
this is <TT>typescript</TT> this is typescript
this is <B><I>very important</I></B> this is very important

HTML also allows you to control the font size of any piece of text, though this is easily overdone.

More extensive character formatting is available with style sheets.
