BOLD SENTENCES

To make a sentence in bold lettering, we use the "font-weight:bold" attribute:

<p style="font-weight:bold">Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.</p>

It will look like this:

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.

Here is the contrast between HTML and Wikitext

HTML Wikitext

<p style="font-weight:bold">Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.</p>

'''Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit'''.

ITALICIZED SENTENCES

To make a sentence in italic lettering, we use the "font-style:italic" attribute:

<p style="font-style:italic">Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.</p>

It will look like this:

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.

HTML Wikitext

<p style="font-style:italic">Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.</p>

''Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.''
