Basically, italic text is in some way its own font, with small changes made to the structure of each letter to account for thebeen possible to float images by declaring, for instance,<IMG SRC="b5.gif"align="right">. This causes an image to floatto the right, and allows other content (text or other images) to"flow around" the image. In the past, this was onlypossible with images and, in some browsers, tables.

Employing vertical-align: top has pretty much the opposite effect of bottom . Likewise, vertical-align: text-top is the reverse of text-bottom . Figure 4-36 shows how the following markup would be
In order to create applications of this category, you might have to define a DTD for your information. Then you have to write classes to import and export information from your XML document(s) (validating using your application's DTD if you have one). You must also write the classes which create the user interface in your application. The user of your application can view and modify information using the GUI (graphical user interface), and they can save (and load) their information to (and from) an XML file (that might use your DTD); in other words, they can save (and load) their information to (and from) an ApplicationML file (where Application is the name of your application). Some examples are AddressBookML, MathML, SVGML, etc.
The classes that import and export information from your ApplicationML file must use the parser and SAX or DOM API in order to import the information. These classes can access this information by using one of the following strategies:
