I'm writing some technical documentation for a rendering engine we're developing. One paragraph says:

The style includes font settings, such as typeface, size, bold, italic, underlined.

Is there a single word that describes the "bold, italic, underlined" traits, so I can write

The style includes font settings, such as typeface, size, {single word}

Technically a single font family may consist of individual fonts in plain, bold, italic, bold italic, and other variants.

However, this is a duplicate of this question, to which the answer is typographical emphasis.
