I Shot the Serif

Example: A Simple Bibliography

Our next example attempts to recreate the first few entries in a simple scientific bibliography (this one is borrowed from my University Mathematics textbook). The text-decoration property is used to underline author names, the font-style property is used to make book titles italic, and the text-indent property is used in a very interesting fashion: by giving a negative value, we create a "hanging indent" for our entries. Also, the familiar text-align property is used to justify our entries.

.bibliography P {
  text-align: justify;
  margin-top: 0;
  margin-bottom: 0;
  margin-left: 2cm;
  margin-right: 1cm;
  text-indent: -1cm;
.bibliography P SPAN.title {
  font-style: italic;
