10.6 Dress It Up, But Check It Out Before You Take It Anywhere

You can also use <span class="(CSS defined style)">some text</span> for text with different formatting inside a paragraph structure to add text decorations, colors, fonts, etc. to specific pieces of text.

There is an excellent compatibility chart at Webreview that will give you an indication of what works in what browsers-- e.g.: "blink" as a text decoration is very poorly supported, and should not be used. Another text decoration not to use is "marquee"-- it is proprietary to MS Internet Explorer. Both of these are very distracting for people with sight disorders.

"strong" can be used for bold text and "em" can be used for italicized text in the XHTML.
