Styled Special (Subject) Content
Stylistically distinct word or phrase within the text that cannot be tagged using any of the other mechanisms for such content. In other words, the content cannot be described with bold, italic, monospace, or any of the other emphasis elements; and <named-content> is inappropriate because the semantic reason behind the typographic distinction is unknown or not clear.
This element is intended for archives who wish to preserve all of the differentiations made by the original publisher (even when the intent for such a distinction is unclear or not necessarily semantic) as well as for publishers and authors who want to make a stylistic rather than a semantic distinction.
Best Practice: For publishers who want to keep a number of named styles consistent throughout the document, the particular stylistic distinction can be named using the @style attribute.
Historical Note: This element replaces the <font> element that was in previous versions of the Tag Suite.
