Enclosed text is displayed in italic. Authors are encouraged to
use the more semantic
(emphasized) element when appropriate, or use style sheets to
italicize semantically marked up text.
In HTML5, the
i element is
included and defined as a "span of text in an alternate voice or mood,
or otherwise offset from normal prose…such as a technical term or
idiomatic phrase from another language [or] some other prose whose
typical typographic presentation is italicized."
