Styles can be applied to individual words or to entire paragraphs.
- Styles the entire paragraph; must be put at the very beginning of the paragraph.
- Styles only the text after the pipe character (“|”). Nesting is supported.
- Note: you can only style entire words, not parts of words.
styles is a set of space-separated rules, as detailed below.
Integers consist of the characters 0 to 9 only. Negative numbers are not allowed.
Words and paragraphs:
- size=integer or integerpt
- Sets the font size of the paragraph or part of it. The default size is 20.
- color=value or #xxx or #xxxxxx
- Sets the text colour of the paragraph of part of it. color may also be spelled colour.
- value can either be a hexadecimal colour code, preceded by #, or a CSS colour keyword, such as red or cyan.
- x represents a single hexadecimal digit; that is, a character in the ranges 0–9 and a–f.
- top or t
- Aligns the text to the top. This is the default.
- middle or m
- Vertically centers the text.
- bottom or b
- Aligns the text to the bottom.
- justify or j
- Enables text justification. This may be combined with any of the three alignments, e.g. [middle justify]; otherwise, top is used.
- margin-top=integer or mt=integer
- Sets the top margin, which effectively indents the entire paragraph.
- margin-bottom=integer or mb=integer
- Sets the bottom margin.
- margin-left=integer or ml=integer
- Sets the left margin, which is before the paragraph; that is, between the paragraph and the preceding paragraph.
- margin-right=integer or mr=integer
- Sets the right margin, which is after the paragraph; that is, between the paragraph and the following paragraph.
Note: margins do collapse. If the first paragraph has margin-right=30 and the second paragraph has margin-left=40, the total distance between the paragraphs will be 40 pixels, not 70.
