Formatting with HTML

Hypertext Markup Language also defines special elements for defining text with a special meaning. It uses elements like bold, italics, deleted, and inserted for formatting output. We will be using the strong element for content that is of greater importance, and the bold element to draw attention to text without indicating that it's more important.*

*The bold and italic elements have been deprecated in HTML5.

In HTML, colors can also be specified using RGB values, HEX values, HSL values, RGBA values, and HSLA values:

representing the colors red, green, and blue (#RR GG BB). For example, in the color red, the color code is #FF0000, which is '255' red, '0' green, and '0' blue. These color codes can be used to change the color of the background, text, and tables on a web page.

Links are found in nearly all web pages. Links allow users to click their way from page to page. HTML links are hyperlinks. You can click on a link and jump to another document. When you move the mouse over a link, the mouse arrow will turn into a little hand. We will later change the format of our links using pseudo-classes that style the links differently depending on what state they are in.
