Questions tagged [text-formatting]

DO NOT USE THIS TAG. Text formatting refers to the appearance of text beyond the use of a standard character set in its simplest form. This includes: highlighting or colour, to draw attention; cursive, for informality; and other aids to the reader such as italic rather than Roman, eg for book titles, or monospaced, eg for code, and size, kerning, direction, small caps, strikethrough etc. Note tags [highlight], [special-characters] and [emoji] exist.
