As a learner when it comes to HTML/CSS I am a little confused about (apparently) recent changes to
HTML, moving functionality to CSS.
As an academic I have been required to reference others' work in my publications according to one
style or another (by default I use APA5). In transferring these works to webpages some problems are
For example: given an in-line citation such as (McConnell, 2002) in an academic/scientific paper,
the bibliographic reference might be:
McConnell, S. (July, 2002) The Business of Software Improvement. IEEE Software pp. 5-7
Note that, in the one line, part (the title) is to be underlined, part (the journal title) to be
itallicized and the remainder in normal face font.
Since was deprecated in HTML, apparently because it was considered to be a presentation issue rather
than one of content, this formatting in validated HTML 4.01 becomes clumsy. The only way I know of
to do this involves:
The Business of Software Improvement
which is considerably more typing.
I can't see any way to perform the process using CSS. Perhaps someone can help with that. Thanks.
