If you use a foreign-language term (e.g., when you want to say “for example,” you’re technically supposed to write e.g. in italics because it’s Latin – exempli gratia), what should your markup be?
Should you use:
… or …
<span style="font-style: italic" lang="latin">e.g.</span>
… or something else?
Even here, typing this into the textbox, the only tag that is available to me is
<em>, but that’s semantically misleading – it’s not emphasis… I’m not sure what it is, though…
