Using the <emphasis> tag

Description

The emphasis tag is used to identify text in a CNXML document that you want or need to emphasize. Please note that this tag refers to semantic emphasis and not to any specific font, since different style sheets may render emphasized text using different fonts and styles.

Example

This CNXML:


<para id="emphexample">
  In addition to bananas and ice cream, a 
  proper banana split requires whipped cream, 
  nuts, <emphasis>and</emphasis>
  cherries.  Remember that the quality of
  the dessert depends on the ice cream, so do 
  <emphasis effect="italics">not</emphasis>
  use a generic brand.
</para>
