These are elements that are used in the body of documents and applications.
This page provides examples of how Amplify does (or doesn't) style some of the more common flow elements that are not covered in more detail elsewhere.
This paragraph contains a selection of HTML5 elements, such as emphasis, strong, and small. You can also use keyboard text, which sometimes is styled similarly to the
code or samp elements. Even more specifically, there is an element just for variables. And let's not forget the sub (H2O) and sup (E = MC2) elements.
abbr: Some vehicles meet the SULEV standard.
br was used to make this sentence start on a new line.
em is used for emphasis and usually renders as italics, contrast that with
i which is used for alternate voice or to offset from the normal (such as a phrase from a different language or taxonomic designation): E. coli can be bad.
strong is used for importance or urgency and usually renders as bold, contrast that with
b which is used to draw attention without the semantic meaning of importance.
