This is a paragraph before a definition list (
dl). In principle, such a list should consist of terms and associated definitions. But many authors use
dl elements for fancy "layout" things. Usually the effect is not too bad, if you design user style sheet rules for
dlwhich are suitable for real definition lists.

sis a nonstandard synonym for
supmarkup) work inside running text, we need some dummy text around constructs like x1 and 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, sin2 x, and some nested superscripts (exponents) too: ex2 and f(x)g(x)a+b+c (where 2 and a+b+c should appear as exponents of exponents).
catfilename displays 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 same presentation for all of them. This tests whether that is the case on your browser:
This is sample text inside code markup
This is a text paragraph that contains some inline links. Generally, inline links (as opposite to e.g. links lists) are problematic from the usability perspective, but they may have use as “incidental”, less relevant links. See the document Links Want To Be Links.
The following table has some sample characters with annotations. If the browser’s default font does not contain all of them, they may get displayed using backup fonts. This may cause stylistic differences, but it should not prevent the characters from being displayed at all.
|ê||e with circumflex||Latin 1 character, should be ok|
|—||em dash||Windows Latin 1 character, should be ok, too|
|Ā||A with macron (line above)||Latin Extended-A character, not present in all fonts|
|Ω||capital omega||A Greek letter|
|−||minus sign||Unicode minus|
|⌀||diameter sign||relatively rare in fonts|
