## <emph>

Emphasized text: Formats the text in a font that draws attention to the text.

### Syntax

<emph>text<\emph>

Or:

!!text!!

The shorthand form for the <emph> element is a set of double exclamation marks (!!) before and after the text.

If you use the <emph> start tag, the <\emph> end tag is required.

### Example

Either of the following two markups:

A thousand times <emph>no<\emph>.
A thousand times !!no!!.

produces:

A thousand times no.
