Highlighting texts

stacruzpFebruary 13, 2003

I have seen html docs where texts were highlighted or having color background (not BODY BGCOLOR=...). Was it done with just html tags or other processes were used? Thanks - Jun.

Hi Prettyphysicslady,
Thanks for the idea. But what I would really like is to highlight an html text(s), like you would highlight a paragraph on a, say, paperback with colored pigment (highlighter pen) so it would be easy to find later. Jun.

Here's how
yellow highlighted text

Just close the spaces in the opening font tag
(There should be no space between

I hope that's clear. If not, look at this web page and view the source code:

The new modern way to do this is via 'span' tags. That is, instead of

<font style="background-color:yellow">yellow highlighted text</font>

You would use

<span style="background-color:yellow">yellow highlighted text<span>

In any case, you should definitely add </FONT> anywhere you use <FONT>
