When making a text italic, this means that the editor wishes the text to tilt towards the right a little. Using italic is usually used as a place holder for a blank piece of information.[1]

Usage[change | edit source]

There are different ways in making a text italic.

HTML[change | edit source]

In HTML, the editor can add the <i> and the </i> tags to make text surrounded by these tags italic.[2]

Wikitext[change | edit source]

In Wikitext, the editor can just add two apostrophes('') around the text to become italic.[3]
