Enliven your words with inline styling


With blue-phrase, 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.
