Some Text Elements in HTML5

This article will give you an overview of some text elements in HTML5.

1. Span element

The span element has no meaning in its own right. We would use it to apply one of the global attributes to a region of content. It is not a new element in HTML5.

The span element can be used with the class attribute, so that we can target content with a CSS style.

Example

<html>

<head>

    <title>Span Example</title>

    <style>

        .HTML5

        {

            border: thick solid blue;

            padding: 4px;

        }

    </style>

</head>

<body>

    Abhijeet likes <span class="HTML5">HTML5 </span>and <span class="HTML5">JavaScript.</span>.

    <br>

    <br>

    <br>

    <span class="HTML5">Hello Guyz </span>Good <span class="HTML5">Morning</span>.

</body>

</html>

2. Mark element

It is basically used for highlighting the text.

In other words I can say that the mark element is new to HTML5 and represents a span of text that is highlighted due to its relevance in another context.

Example

<html>

<head>

    <title>Mark Example</title>

</head>

<body>

    Hello Guyz Good Morning..

    <p>

        I like

        <mark>HTML5</mark>

        and

        <mark>JavaScript.</mark>

    </p>

</body>

</html>

3. Ins element

    <p>

        <ins>I can

4. Del element

We denote text that has been removed from the document using the del element. It is also a new element in HTML5.

Example

<html>

<head>

    <title>Del Example</title>

</head>

<body>

    Good Morning Guyzz

    <p>

        <del>A king
