To Emphasize a Word or Phrase

    Use the <emph> element (emphasis) as shown:

<emph> text <\emph>  

Or, use the shorthand form:

!! text !! 

Emphasized text is displayed using an italic font.


Here's how you might emphasize an important word:

A thousand times <emph>no<\emph> 

Or, using the shorthand form:

A thousand times !!no!!

In both cases, the word "no" is displayed in italics.
