HTML <var> Tag

Description


The <var> HTML element is used for indicating an instance of a variable or a parameter for an application. The variable could be part of an application, mathematical expression, or a placeholder in prose. It's typically presented using an italicized version of the current typeface, although that behaviour is browser-dependent.
