Basic block level elements

This is a normal paragraph (p element). To add some length to it, let us mention that this page was primarily written for testing the effect of user style sheets. You can use it for various other purposes as well, like just checking how your browser displays various HTML elements by default. It can also be useful when testing conversions from HTML format to other formats, since some elements can go wrong then.

This is a div element. Authors may use such elements instead of paragraph markup for various reasons. (End of div.)

This is a block quotation containing a single paragraph. Well, not quite, since this is not really quoted text, but I hope you understand the point. After all, this page does not use HTML markup very normally anyway.

 

Lists

This is a paragraph before an unnumbered list (ul). Note that the spacing between a paragraph and a list before or after that is hard to tune in a user style sheet. You can’t guess which paragraphs are logically related to a list, e.g. as a “list header”.

  • One.
  • Two.
  • Three. Well, probably this list item should be longer. Note that for short items lists look better if they are compactly presented, whereas for long items, it would be better to have more vertical spacing between items.
  • Four. This is the last item in this list. Let us terminate the list now without making any more fuss about it.

  • bolded (b markup used – just bolding with unspecified semantics)
  • here we have some deleted text (del markup used)
  • this is very simple (em markup used for emphasizing a word)
  • Homo sapiens (should appear in italics; i markup used)
  • Hello! (q markup used for quotation)
  • this is not that important (small markup used)
  • overstruck (strike markup used; note: s is a nonstandard synonym for strike)
  • this is highlighted text (strong markup used)
  • underlined text (u markup used)

Links

This is a text paragraph that contains some inline links. Generally, inline links (as opposite to e.g. links lists) are problematic from the usability perspective, but they may have use as “incidental”, less relevant links. See the document Links Want To Be Links.
