Enliven your words with inline styling


With BLUEPHRASE, your words are always first and foremost, so sentences and paragraphs need no special treatment. When phrases need emphasis, surround them with styling doppelmarks.

Styling doppelmarks are two consecutive less-than and greater-than characters << ... >> , which surround the words that need emphasis. Here are a few examples:

Budapest has two sides: the city of <<i Buda>> on the hilly west bank of the Danube, and the city of <<i Pest>> on the prairies to the east. 
Buda may have the palace, but Pest houses the dazzling <<b neo-Gothic Hungarian parliament>> with its superlative interior.
The ramparts of the old <<u Citadella fortress>> provide stunning vistas over the Danube.
<<q Visit Buda but stay in Pest>> is the best advice for visitors.
