23. Highlighting

By highlighting we mean any combination of typographic features (font, size, hue, etc.) which distinguishes the highlighted text from its surroundings. This may be for many reasons...
  • to mark foreign, archaic, technical usages
  • for emphasis when spoken
  • to show something is not part of the text.. (e.g. cross references, titles, headings)
