HTML - Italic

This, same as the bold tag, is used to highlight certain terms or words, sometimes even an entire sentence. It is not indicated to abuse of its use though.

To create this type of text we can use the followings:

html<i>Italic</i> Tag!<br />
<em>Emphasized</em> Tag!<br />

Usually, the browser will interpret these tags in the same way. The most used is normally the emtag, because of the thing that can have different interpretation depending of the device or application where it is displayed.

HTML - Both Bold and Italic

Most of the times bold and italic are being put under some other tags to get to the text's final format. Under no circumstance, this tags are left unclosed and all tags must be closed in the same order that they have been opened.
