I’m not a programmer and I presume the frontend web application takes care of the formatting of the retrieved output.
In my situation, almost each record has different content and my question is:
How is the formatting of a document (record) done in the frontend if the contents are almost never the same from document-to-document?
I need to deal with stuff like:
Different point sizes
Superscripts / subscripts
Bold, italic, underline, strike through
In a website you can tag the content ahead of time and work with CSS, but I don’t know how it works when
you’re retrieving records from a MongoDB database.
Can somebody let their light shine on this and explain whether it is at all possible, and if so, how?
The content in question here, are dictionary entries and glossary entries.
Thanks in advance for the feedback.
