This is 1st level heading

This is a normal paragraph (pelement). To add some length to it, let us mention that this page was primarily written for testing the effect of user style sheets. You can use it for various other purposes as well, like just checking how your browser displays various HTML elements by default. It can also be useful when testing conversions from HTML format to other  formats, since some elements can go wrong then.

Basic block level elements

This is a normal paragraph (pelement). To add some length to it, let us mention that this page was primarily written for testing the effect of user style sheets. You can use it for various other purposes as well, like just checking how your browser displays various HTML elements by default. It can also be useful when testing conversions from HTML format to other  formats, since some elements can go wrong then. This is another paragraph. I think it needs to be added that the set of elements tested is not exhaustive in any sense. I have selected those elements for which it can make sense to write user style sheet rules, in my opionion.

This is a divelement. Authors may use such elements instead of paragraph markup for various reasons. (End of div.)

This is a block quotation containing a single paragraph. Well, not quite, since this is not reallyquoted text, but I hope you understand the point. After all, this page does not use HTML markup very normally anyway.

The following contains address information about the author, in an addresselement.

Lists

This is a paragraph before an unnumberedlist (ul). Note that the spacing between a paragraph and a list before or after that is hard to tune in a user style sheet. You can’t guess which paragraphs are logically related to a list, e.g. as a “list header”.

  • One.
  • Two.
  • Three. Well, probably this list item should be longer. Note that for short items lists look better if they are compactly presented, whereas for long items, it would be better to have more vertical spacing between items.
  • Four. This is the last item in this list. Let us terminate the list now without making any more fuss about it.

The following is a menulist:

  • One.
  • Two.
  • Three. Well, probably this list item should be longer so that it will probably wrap to the next line in rendering.
  • The following is a dirlist:

    • One.
    • Two.
    • Three. Well, probably this list item should be longer so that it will probably wrap to the next line in rendering. This is a paragraph before a numberedlist (ol). Note that the spacing between a paragraph and a list before or after that is hard to tune in a user style sheet. You can’t guess which paragraphs are logically related to a list, e.g. as a “list header”.

      4. Four. This is the last item in this list. Let us terminate the list now without making any more fuss about it.

      This is a paragraph before a definitionlist (dl). In principle, such a list should consist of termsand associated definitions. But many authors use dlelements for fancy “layout” things. Usually the effect is not toobad, if you design user style sheet rules for dlwhich are suitable for real definition lists.

      Text-level markup

      • CSS(an abbreviation; abbrmarkup used)
      • radar(an acronym; acronymmarkup used)
      • bolded(bmarkup used – just bolding with unspecified semantics)
      • big thing(bigmarkup used)
      • large size(font size=6markup used)
      • Courier font(font face=Couriermarkup used)
      • red text(font color=redmarkup used)
      • Origin of Species(a book title; citemarkup used)
      • a[i] = b[i] + c[i);(computer code; codemarkup used)
      • here we have some deletedtext (delmarkup used)
      • an octetis an entity consisting of eight bits (dfnmarkup used for the term being defined)
      • this is verysimple (emmarkup used for emphasizing a word)
      • Homo sapiens(should appear in italics; imarkup used)
      • here we have some insertedtext (insmarkup used)
      • type yeswhen prompted for an answer (kbdmarkup used for text indicating keyboard input)
      • Hello!(qmarkup used for quotation)
      • He said: She said Hello!(a quotation inside a quotation)
      • you may get the message Core dumpedat times (sampmarkup used for sample output)
      • this is not that important(smallmarkup used)
      • overstruck(strikemarkup used; note: sis a nonstandard synonym for strike)
      • this is highlighted text(strongmarkup used)
      • In order to test how subscripts and superscripts (suband supmarkup) work inside running text, we need some dummy text around constructs like x1and H2O (where subscripts occur). So here is some fill so that you will (hopefully) see whether and how badly the subscripts and superscripts mess up vertical spacing between lines. Now superscripts: Mlle, 1st, and then some mathematical notations: ex, sin2x, and some nested superscripts (exponents) too: ex2and f(x)g(x)a+b+c(where 2 and a+b+c should appear as exponents of exponents).
      • text in monospace font(ttmarkup used)
      • underlinedtext (umarkup used)
      • the command catfilenamedisplays the file specified by the filename(varmarkup used to indicate a word as a variable).

      Some of the elements tested above are typically displayed in a monospace font, often using the samepresentation for all of them. This tests whether that is the case on your browser:

      • This is sample text inside code markup
      • This is sample text inside kbd markup
      • This is sample text inside samp markup
      • This is sample text inside tt markup

      Links

      This is a text paragraph that contains some inline links. Generally, inline links (as opposite to e.g. links lists) are problematic from the usabilityperspective, but they may have use as “incidental”, less relevant links. See the document Links Want To Be Links.

      Forms

      This is a form containing various fields (with some initial values (defaults) set, so that you can see how input text looks like without actually typing it):
