Two columns text.

Dropcap paragraph

Drop caps allow you to stylize the first letter in a post or page. Simply wrap the first letter in a span with “dropcap” class.
Drop cap examples.

Text highlighting

To highlight text, wrap it with the pre element:

.post-title {
	margin: 0 0 5px;
	font-weight: bold;
	font-size: 38px;
	line-height: 1.2;
	and here's a line of some really, really, really, really long text, just to see how the PRE tag handles it and to find out how it overflows;
