Highlight Text Style

To use the highlight, you simply need to add a span with the class highlight. This can be done in the Text editor view. See an example below:

<span class="highlight">This will be highlighted.</span>

Pull Quote Styles

To use the pull quote, you simply need to add a class of pull-right or pull-left to your content. This can be done in the Text editor view. See an example below:

<span class="pull-right">Pull this text right.</span>

This pull quote is just hanging out on the right side of the post.

A pull quote (also known as a lift-out quote) is a quotation or excerpt from an article that is typically placed in a larger or distinctive typeface on the same page, serving to entice readers into an article or to highlight a key topic. The term is principally used in journalism and publishing.

Placement of a pull quote on a page may be defined in a publication’s or website’s style guide. Such a typographic device may or may not be aligned with a column on the page. Some designers, for example, choose not to align the quote. In that case, the quotation cuts into two or more columns, as in the example shown.

And this pull quote is pulling text to the left, like a sir.

Pull quotes need not be a verbatim copy of the text being quoted; depending on a publication’s house style pull quotes may be abbreviated for space and/or paraphrased for clarity, with or without indication.
