How to highlight the text in html?, someone asked me to explain?

In this article, I will show how to make text highlighted in html. You can create a css class for highlighting the text and apply to the html <span> tag. i.e css text highlight color.

Line spacing in Html code:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
    <style type="text/css">
        p {
            font: 17px Arial, sans-serif, Helvetica,Verdana;
            line-height: 1.5;

        .highlight {
            background-color: #FFFFCC;
            color: #B24422;
<body style="border: 1px solid #e2d9d9; width: 500px; height: 340px">
    <h1 style="color: #0480d1">Csshighlight color </h1>
    <p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit.
<span class="highlight">Aenean</span> commodo ligula eget dolor.
Aenean massa. Cum sociis natoque penatibus et magnis dis parturient
montes,nascetur ridiculus mus. Donec quam felis, ultricies
nec, pellentesque eu,pretium quis, sem.
<span class="highlight">Nulla
</span> consequat massa quis enim.</p>
