Inline styles are styles that you apply just to a few words or characters within a paragraph, without affecting the rest of the text in the paragraph. Hederis supports most of Word’s built-in character formatting tools (like italics, bold, underline, etc.), so you don’t need to use inline styles for everything. However, there are a few cases where inline styles come in handy:
HED SPAN Small Caps Text
HED SPAN Emphasis Text
Text that should be emphasized both visually and while being read aloud. This style is typically represented as italics. (In modern web development, “emphasis” has replaced “italic” as a code to add emphasis to your text.)
Note that you can use Word’s built-in Italic formatting button, and this style will automatically be applied when the .docx file is converted in Hederis.
HED SPAN Strong Text
This style is typically used for bold text. (In modern web development, “strong” has replaced “boldas a code to add weight to your text.)
Note that you can use Word’s built-in bold formatting button, and this style will automatically be applied when the .docx file is converted in Hederis.
HED SPAN Superscript Text
HED SPAN Subscript Text
HED SPAN Inline Link
A Link or url.
HED SPAN Abbreviation Text
HED SPAN Key phrase
A word or phrase that should be differentiated from the rest of the text, but doesn’t fall into any of the other Inline Style categories.
