Let us see some of the text formatting tags which are frequently used in our regular coding.

  • The tag with "p" defines a paragraph. This tag is used for "paragraph text" by using this tag, browsers could automatically add an empty line before and after a paragraph.
  • Headings are defined from <h1> to <h6> . These heading tags used to specify the main headings and subheadings of a webpage. Usually google bots consider the H1 tag as main heading and remaining H2, H3, H4, H5 and H6 are sub headings in the web page at various levels.
  • <mark> tag is used to highlight the text, by default mark tag takes the yellow color for highlighting.
  • <align> tag is used to align the text in the specified format, such as, right, left, center, justify.
  • If we want to make some text as italic then place the text in between the <i> Your text goes here </i>.
  • To create an underlined sentence, use <u> underlined text goes here </u>.
  • To provide quotes use this <q> Quoted Text </q> .
  • To strike out the given text use strike tag <strike> Striked Text Goes Here </strike>.

 Example HTML Code:


<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
