4.3. Changing Text Appearance

A number of tags change the appearance of and associate hidden meaning with text. In general, these tags can be grouped into two flavors: content-based styles and physical styles.

In addition, the W3C standard for Cascading Style Sheets is now well-supported by the popular browsers, providing another, more comprehensive way for authors to control the look and layout of their document text. Netscape has also implemented style sheets through JavaScript. We describe the tag-based text styles in this chapter. See Chapter 8, "Cascading Style Sheets" for details about Cascading Style Sheets, and Chapter 12, "Executable Content" for JavaScript-based style sheets.
