From The Art and Popular Culture Encyclopedia
"It would be hard to find any reputable literary critic today who would care to be caught defending as an idea the old antithesis of style versus content. On this issue a pious consensus prevails. Everyone is quick to avow that style and content are indissoluble, that the strongly individual style of each important writer is an organic aspect of his work and never something merely "decorative."" --"On Style" (1966) - Susan Sontag
"The The Literary Underground of the Old Regime introduces us to the shadowy world of pirate publishers, garret scribblers, under-the-cloak book peddlers, smugglers, and police spies that composed the literary underground of the Enlightenment." --Sholem Stein
Content can refer to:
- Information and experiences created by individuals, institutions and technology to benefit audiences in contexts that they value.
- Subject of the plot, in narrative works.
Online, content is generally referred to as the elements on a web page. This could include text, graphics, clip art, photos, videos, podcasts, wav files, hyperlinks, code or any value-added substance that a visitor to the web page would benefit from. The phrase "content is king" on the Internet has come to mean that the elements on a web page that exists in cyberspace are more important than the design of the web page. It is generally believed by Internet marketers that text and graphics benefit website visitors more than anything else.
