      p::first-line {color: yellowgreen; font-weight: bold;}
   </style>
</head>
<body>

   <p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet consectetur adipisicing elit.
   Neque quam delectus corporis ipsum, itaque sunt suscipit blanditiis,
   dolorum ratione natus dignissimos odio culpa in recusandae magni
   eum voluptates! Atque commodi excepturi repudiandae a ab possimus
   nobis ratione praesentium in neque.</p>
   
</body>
</html>
