Name

emphasis — A limited span of emphasized text

Synopsis

emphasis (db._emphasis) ::= (text | emphasis db._emphasis | phrase db._phrase | replaceable | Graphic inlines | Indexing inlines | Linking inlines | Ubiquitous inlines)*

Description

An emphasis element indicates that certain text should be stressed in some way. This pattern defines the emphasis element with a very limited content model.

Processing expectations

Formatted inline. Emphasized text is traditionally presented in italics or boldface. A role attribute of bold or strong is often used to generate boldface, if italics is the default presentation.

An emphasis is often used wherever its typographic presentation is desired, even when other markup might theoretically be more appropriate.
