 What is text formatting tag?
Text formatting tags allow you to modify your text display in the browser window. For example, to bold a text, you can use the <b> tag. 

E.g. <b> This text in between the opening bold tag and the closing bold tag will have a bold font </b>

 Below is the list of the common text formatting tags that you can use to alter your text display: 

1. Bold Tag<b>This text will be in bold</b> 

2. Italic Tag<i>This text will be in italic</i> 

3. Underline Tag<u>This text will be underlined</u> 

4. Emphasize Tag<em>This will emphasize your text</em>
5. Strong Tag<strong>This text will be strong</strong>
6. Big Tag<big> This will define big text</big>
7. Small Tag<small> This will define small text</small>
8. Subscript Tag<sub>This text will be subscripted</sub>
9. Superscript Tag<sup>This text will be superscripted</sup>
10. Center Tag<center> This text will be centered</center>
11. Left Tag<left>This text will display in the left hand side of the screen</left>
12. Right Tag<right>This text will display in the right hand side of the screen</right>
13. Unordered List Tag<ul><li>This is an unordered list</li><li>This is an unordered list</li></ul>
14. Ordered List Tag<ol><li>This is number 1 on my list</li><li>This is number 2 on my list</li></ol>


Please Take Note:1. These tags can also be combined. If you want an underlined bold text, you can use <u><b>This text will be bold and underlined</b></u> Just be creative enough to know where to place each tag and always remember that opening and closing tag must be at the extreme of the text on which it will have effect on !2. However, always close the first tag that you have opened last. In the above example, the <u> has been opened FIRST, before the <b> tag, but has been closed LAST.
