A term is defined in nearly every paragraph in the Terminology section. Terms
are formatted differently from the general text, but this format varies from
paragraph-to-paragraph and, in some cases, from sentence-to-sentence.

Examples:

S2.1P1:
  Sentence 2: content attributes, DOM Attributes -- bold
  Sentence 3: properties -- quoted

S2.1P2:
  Sentence 1: All terms are links with no additional format

S2.1P4:
  Sentence 1: document -- italicized

S2.1.1P1:
  Sentence 2: Terms are quoted and bold


I'm not sure if there is a standard for how emphasis should be placed when
defining terms. IIRC from my school days, textbooks would typically have terms
in bold text.
