<emph> Emphasis

<emph> is a formatting element used to mark words or phrases which should be stressed or emphasized for linguistic effect. If the contents of an entire element should always be rendered in italics or otherwise emphasized, use the stylesheet instead. It may be used within <abstract>, <addressline>, <archref>, <author>, <bibref>, <bibseries>, <container>, <corpname>, <creation>, <date>, <descrules>, <dimensions>, <edition>, <emph>, <entry>, <event>, <extent>, <extref>, <extrefloc>, <famname>, <function>, <genreform>, <geogname>, <head>, <head01>, <head02>, <imprint>, <item>, <label>, <langmaterial>, <language>, <langusage>, <legalstatus>, <materialspec>, <name>, <num>, <occupation>, <origination>, <p>, <persname>, <physdesc>, <physfacet>, <physloc>, <publisher>, <ref>, <refloc>, <repository>, <resource>, <runner>, <sponsor>, <subarea>, <subject>, <subtitle>, <title>, <titleproper>, <unitdate>, <unitid>, and <unittitle>.


  • ALTRENDER – not required. If none of the values in RENDER meet the encoder’s needs, specify “altrender” in RENDER and specify another value here to be read by the stylesheet.
  • ID – not required. A unique id for this element.
  • RENDER – not required. May be used to specify how the element should be displayed and printed. Possible values are altrender (see ALTRENDER above), bold, bolddoublequote, bolditalic, boldsinglequote, boldsmcaps, boldunderline, doublequote, italic, nonproport, singlequote, smcaps, sub, super, and underline.


<emph> will probably contain PCDATA and may also contain further <emph> elements and <abbr>, <archref>, <bibref>, <expan>, <extptr>, <extref>, <lb />, <linkgrp>, <ptr>, <ref>, and <title>.
