HTML and CSS Reference
In-Depth Information
Use the <cite> tag to set apart any reference to another document, es-
pecially those in traditional media, such as books, magazines, journal
articles, and the like. If an online version of the referenced work exists,
you also should enclose the citation within the <a> tag in order to make
it a hyperlink to that online version.
The <cite> tag also has a hidden feature: it enables you or someone
else to automatically extract a bibliography from your documents. It is
easy to envision a browser that compiles tables of citations automatic-
ally, displaying them as footnotes or as a separate document entirely.
The semantics of the <cite> tag go far beyond changing the appearance
of the enclosed text; they enable the browser to present the content to
the user in a variety of useful ways.
4.4.4. The <code> Tag
Software code warriors have become accustomed to a special style of
text presentation for their source programs. The <code> tag is for them.
It renders the enclosed text in a monospaced, teletype-style font such
as Courier, familiar to most programmers and readers of O'Reilly topics
such as this one.
This following bit of en <code> ed text is rendered in a monospaced font
style by Firefox, as shown in Figure 4-8 (though the effect is not dra-
matic, admittedly):
The array reference <code>a[i]</code> is identical to
the pointer reference <code>*(a+i)</code>.
