HTML i Tag

HTML i tag: The HTML<i> tag displays the text in italic. This tag defines a part of the text in an alternate voice or mood. This can be used to indicate a technical term, a phrase from another language, a thought, or a ship name, etc. In HTML4 the <i> tag was used to extract the text in italics in HTML4. But in HTML5 it is not essential.

  • <dfn> (a definition term)
