Accessibility Information & Tips

  • Use semantic markup elements like "em", "strong", "cite", "blockquote", "q", "quote", "sub", and "sup" when appropriate. Use "em" and "strong" to indicate structural emphasis, use "blockquote" for long quotations which may require paragraph breaks, use "q" for short inline quotations, and use "sub" and "sup" for subscripts and superscripts.
