Commonly Used Typography Tags

Paragraph

All paragraphs are wrapped with the p tag. This tag can also be wrapped by the blockquote tag if the text is a quote for an external source or a pull quote from the article.

Block Quotes

Block quotes are section of content quoted from an external source or quotes pulled from article itself. The blockquote may contain a p tag. For example, we are quoting Ray Eames, from Quotes on Design, below.

“What works good is better than what looks good, because what works good lasts.” — Ray Eames

Inline Quotes

The q tag is used for short quotations inline within a paragraph. Here is an example of nested quotations.

He said, Buzz Lightyear catch phrase is, To infinity and beyond!

Ordered Lists

Ordered lists, or ol are used to list items in an hierarchical fashion. Each list item, or li, is preceded by a numerical representation of its place in the hierarchy. An ordered list can also contain another ordered list as well as an unordered list, or ul.

  1. This is the first item in an ordered list.
  2. This is the second item in an ordered list with a sub-ordered list.
    1. This is an ordered list item.
    2. This is an ordered list item
    3. This is an ordered list item
  3. This is the third item in an ordered list.
  4. This is the fourth item in an ordered list with a sub-unordered list.
    • This is an unordered list item
    • This is an unordered list item
    • This is an unordered list item
Unordered Lists

Unordered lists, or ul are used to list items without any hierarchical value to them. Each list item may be preceded by a bullet or any non numerical representation. An unordered list can also contain an ordered list as well as another unordered list.

  • This is the first item in an unordered list.
  • This is the second item in an unordered list with a sub-ordered list.
    1. This is an ordered list item.
    2. This is an ordered list item
    3. This is an ordered list item
  • This is the third item in an unordered list.
  • This is the fourth item in an unordered list with a sub-unordered list.
    • This is an unordered list item
    • This is an unordered list item
    • This is an unordered list item
Definition Lists

Definition lists, or dl are generally used to denote a list of items that share a relationship with one another. A dl should contain at least one dt and one dd.

Links

Links are commonly used to link one page to another, either internally or externally; and are wrapped by the a tag.

Buttons

Buttons can be added by using the button shortcode or adding a class of btn to an element, usually and anchor tag. By default the button is dark; however, you can add a btn-trans class to the element to make the button light.

Emphasized Text

Emphasized text is usually relegated to text you would pronounce differently in a conversation or text you are putting a stressed emphasis on and is wrapped inside of the em tag. For example:

Reading this blog will make you a better person.

Strong Text

Strong text is usually relegated to text you are placing strong emphasis on and is wrapped inside of the strong tag. For example:

Subscribe to this blog’s RSS Feed now or you will be sorry.

Marked or highlighted text

The mark tag is used for indicating text as marked or highlighted for reference purposes, due to its relevance in another context. The mark tag was introduced in HTML 5. Internet Explorer 8 and older do not support this tag. For example:

Despite the stock market crash in 2008, the value of my share portfolio increased by 100 percent. I must be doing something right.

Small Print

The small element is used to represent disclaimers, caveats, legal restrictions, or copyrights (commonly referred to as ‘small print’). It can also be used for attributions or satisfying licensing requirements. For example:

Copyright © 2013 Press75. All Rights Reserved.

Delete & Insert

Markup of deleted text can be useful in determining differences between multiple versions of the same document. Browsers will normally strike a line through deleted text and underline inserted text. For example:

Press75 is located in Monticello, IA Seattle, WA.

Citation

The cite element is used to represent the title of a work (e.g. a book, essay, poem, song, film, TV show, sculpture, painting, musical, exhibition, etc). This can be a work that is being quoted or referenced in detail (i.e. a citation), or it can just be a work that is mentioned in passing. For example:

I highly recommend reading The Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison. It changed my life when I was 15 years old.

Abbreviations & Acronyms

The abbr element is used for any abbreviated text, whether it be acronym, initialism, or otherwise. Any text in the title attribute will appear when the user’s mouse hovers the abbreviation. The acronym tag has been dropped from the HTML 5 specs because of the confusion between these two tags. You should exclusively use abbr but both are styled for this theme. For example:

The abbreviation for the National Football League is NFL and the acronym for as soon as possible is ASAP.

Subscript & Superscript

The sub tag defines subscript text. Subscript text appears half a character below the baseline. Subscript text can be used for chemical formulas, like H2O.

The sup tag defines superscript text. Superscript text appears half a character above the baseline. Superscript text can be used for footnotes, like WWW[1].
