Emphasis (typography) facts for kids
In typography, emphasis is to strengthen words in a text. Often, this is done by using the font in a different style from the rest of the text. This highlights them. It is rather like changing tone of voice or speaking louder.
In practice, most experienced writers look to change the text itself (the actual words) before they consider anything else.
