Bold and Italic Text

<b> creates bold text

</b> closes bold text

<i> creates italic text

</i> closes italic text

Both bold (bold) and italic (italic) text are used to show emphasis. Happily, they're two of the easiest tags to master.

To create bold text, just sandwich the word(s) you want to appear in bold with the tags <b> and </b>.

For example, you might want to say something like:

<b>Help!</b> Call the <b>Police!</b>

Which would look like this:

Help! Call the Police!


To create italics, just use the italic tags <i> (the word) </i>.

For example, you could say:

<b>Help!</b> Call the <b>Police!</b>, and I <i>really</i> need help!

Which will look like:

Help! Call the Police!, and I really need help!

You can also use alternate tags - including <strong> and <em> - used to emphasize text; however, both of these tags may be displayed as either bold or italic, depending on the browser.

To maintain precise control over the appearance of your text, opt for the <b> or <i> tags.
