Typography - Body Text

Body
  • .lede (Intro text)

    A lede, or lead, paragraph in literature is the opening paragraph of an article, essay, news story or book chapter. It usually occurs together with the headline or title. It precedes the main body of the article, and it gives the reader the main idea of the story. In both spellings, the word rhymes with the word need.

  • <p> or .body-text

    All paragraphs are wrapped in p tags. Additionally, p elements can be wrapped with a blockquote element if the p element is indeed a quote. Historically, blockquote has been used purely to force indents, but this is now achieved using CSS. Reserve blockquote for quotes.

    <small> or .small-body-text
