HTML and CSS Reference
Chapter 4. Text Basics
Any successful presentation, even a thoughtful tome, should have its text
organized into an attractive, effective document. Organizing text into at-
tractive and effective documents is HTML and XHTML's forte. The lan-
guages give you a number of tools that help you mold your text and get
your message across. They also help structure your document so that
your target audience has easy access to your words.
Always keep in mind while designing your documents (here we go again!)
that the markup tags, particularly with regard to text, only advisethey do
not dictatehow a browser will ultimately render the document. Rendering
varies from browser to browser. Don't get too entangled with trying to
get just the right look and layout. Your attempts may and probably will
be thwarted by the browser.
