HTML Formatting

HTML Formatting Tags are used to alter the appearance of text so that it has a more appealing appearance than the default content. Text can be bolded, italicized, underlined, and so on using formatting tags.

All of the formatting tags are linked to one another. Anything written between any formatting tag will be displayed in the browser according to the tag. Anything written between I and /i>, for example, will appear in the browser as italic text.


There are different tags for various formatting tags. Each Tag has its own type of formatting associated with it.
