We are going to be discussing just a few of these phrase tags but they are the important ones that we use in our everyday HTML documents.

Emphasized Text

Any text that appears in between the <em> </em> tags, will be displayed as an emphasized text.

Example:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
   <head>
      <title>Emphasized Text Example</title>
   </head>
   <body>
      <p>The following word uses an <em>emphasized</em> typeface.</p>
   </body>	
</html>

The above code will be displayed as:

Marked Text

Any text that appears in between the <mark> </mark> tags, will be displayed as a marked text with yellow ink. An example is shown below:

Example

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>

   <head>
      <title>Marked Text Example</title>
   </head>
	
   <body>
      <p>The following word has been <mark>marked</mark> with yellow</p>
   </body>
	
</html>

 The above code will be displayed as:

Strong Text

Any text that appears in between the <em> </em> tags, will be displayed as a thick and important text. An example is shown below:

Example

      <title>Strong Text Example</title>
   </head>
	
   <body>
      <p>The following word uses a <strong>strong</strong> typeface.</p>
   </body>

Text Abbreviation

You can abbreviate a text just by placing it in between an opening <abbr> and a closing </abbr> tag. when present, the title attribute must be placed inside the tag containing just a full description and nothing else. An example is shown below:

Example

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>

   <head>
      <title>Text Abbreviation</title>
   </head>
	
   <body>
      <p>My best friend's name is  <abbr title = "Abhishek">Abhy</abbr>.</p>
   </body>
	
</html>

Acronym Element

The <acronym> element tag lets you to display that the content in between the <acronym> and </acronym> HTML tags is actually an acronym.

Although currently, most browsers do not change how the content of the <acronym> element looks.

Example

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>

   <head>
      <title>Acronym Example</title>
   </head>
	
   <body>
      <p>This chapter covers marking up text in <acronym>XHTML</acronym>.</p>
   </body>
	
</html>

The <bdo>...</bdo> element is full for Bi-Directional Override and it mainly is used to manually override the direction of the current text. An example is shown below:

Example

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>

   <head>
      <title>Text Direction Example</title>
   </head>

   <body>
      <p>This text will go left to right.</p>
      <p><bdo dir = "rtl">This text will go right to left.</bdo></p>
   </body>

</html>
