La propiedad CSS de text-emphasis, es una propiedad abreviada para establecer los valores de text-empahasis-style y text-emphasis-color, en una sola declaración.

Esta propiedad aplicara el énfasis a cada carácter especificado en el texto del elemento, a excepción de caracteres separados como espacios y caracteres de control .

/* Valor Inicial */
text-emphasis: none; /* No emphasis marks */

/* <string> valor */
text-emphasis: "x";
text-emphasis: "点";
text-emphasis: "\25B2";
text-emphasis: "*" #555;
text-emphasis: "foo"; /* Should NOT use. It may be computed to or rendered as 'f' only */

/* Valor de la Palabra Clave */
text-emphasis: filled;
text-emphasis: open;
text-emphasis: filled sesame;
text-emphasis: open sesame;

/* Valor de la Palabra clave combinada con un color */
text-emphasis: filled sesame #555;

/* Valores Globales */
text-emphasis: inherit;
text-emphasis: initial;
text-emphasis: unset;

La propiedad text-emphasis es diferente a la propiedad text-decoration.

Text-decoration no hereda y la decoración se aplica atreves de todo el elemento. Sin embargo, la propiedad test-emphasis si hereda, lo que significa que es posible cambiar el énfasis para los descendientes.

The size of the emphasis symbol, like ruby symbols, is about 50% of the size of the font, and text-emphasis may affect line height when the current leading is not enough for the marks.

Nota: text-emphasis doesn't reset the value of text-emphasis-position. This is because if the style and the color of emphasis marks may vary in a text, it is extremely unlikely that their position will. In the very rare cases when this is needed, the property text-emphasis-position.
