This brief post is result of a question posted by Icaro Perseo. He used org-mode for blogging using org2blog, but was not satisfied with default HTML tags used by org-mode.
He wanted to change the default emphasis on text when it is converted to HTML in org-mode. By default during conversion from org to HTML,
/text/ converts to
*text* converts to
Instead, he wanted to use
<strong> instead of
Well, everything can be customized from Emacs and Icaro’s solution to his problem lies in the customization of group `org-appearance`. To customize this group, type
M-x customize-group org-appearance
and search for the variable
Org Emphasis Alist
Now change the value of HTML start tag and HTML end tag to whatever you want.
Update - March 1, 2016: This solution is NOT valid for Emacs-pretest version(126.96.36.199)
