that, it's easiest to turn to Figure 5-24,which illustrates the differences very clearly.

Figure 5-24. Italic and oblique text in detail

Basically, italic text is in some way its own font, with smallchanges made to the structure of each letter to account for thealtered appearance. This is especially true of serif fonts, where inaddition to the fact that the text characters "lean," theserifs may be altered in an italic face. Oblique text, on the otherhand, is simply a slanted version of the normal, upright text. Fontand oblique fonts look exactly the same in web browsers.

Still, font-style can be useful. For example, itis a common typographic convention that a block quote should beitalicized, but that any specially emphasized text within the quoteshould be upright. In order to employ this effect, shown in Figure 5-28, you would use these styles:this method works. It's really the same as the last method: it just uses a different number system. If you have to pick between the two, use whichever makes you more comfortable.

So, similar to the way you can specify a color using three numbers from to 255, you can specify one using three hex pairs. If you have a calculator that converts between decimal and hexadecimal, then making the jump should be pretty simple. If not, it might be a little more complicated. (Of course, you could just not use this method, but thatsurprise that the simplest property used to affect this area is called padding.

CSS also allows for comments, but it uses a completely different syntax to accomplish this. CSS comments are very similar to C/C++ comments, in that they are surrounded by /* and */:

/* This is a CSS1 comment */

Comments can span multiple lines, just as in C++:

/* This is a CSS1 comment, and it
can be several lines long without
end, as shown in Figure 7-55.

It's also acceptable for the lines to be "open" asshown in Figure 7-54.
