u element

If you don't know what an element is or how you must use it, I recommend you read the "HTML tags and attributes" tutorial that you can find in the HTML tutorials section.

Description

The u element represents text with an unarticulated, though explicitly rendered, non-textual annotation. Although rarely useful, this element can be found labeling Chinese proper names or mispelled words.

Authors should be aware that in most cases other elements are more appropriate than u, such as em, b, i, mark or the like.

Examples

The next example shows a chinese phrase with a proper name wrapped with u. This is equivalent to the English capitalization of the first letter in proper names.

<p>...the phrase "我來自<u>德國</u>。", which stands for "I come from Germany".</p>

...the phrase "我來自德國。", which stands for "I come from Germany".

Now, a document produced as output of a spellcheck, contains several misspelt words marked with u.

<p>Cancer, also known as a <u>malignan</u> tumor, is a group of <u>disseases</u> involving abnormal cell growth with the potential to invade or spread to other parts of the body. Not all tumors are cancerous; benign tumors do not spread to other parts of the body. <u>Posible</u> signs and symptoms include: a new lump, abnormal bleeding, a prolonged cough, unexplained weight loss, and a change in bowel movements, among others. While these symptoms may indicate cancer they may also occur due to other <u>isues</u>. There are over 100 <u>diferent</u> known cancers that affect humans.</p>
