To highlight a part of the text, to mark it as important for reference or any other notation purpose, the HTML <mark> tag is used. It was introduced in HTML5. It usually displays the content with a yellow background. The background color can be changed using the CSS style property.




<!DOCTYPE html>
<p><mark>Success</mark> is not final. <mark>Failure</mark> is not fatal. It is the <mark>Courage</mark> to continue that counts.</p>
