This question already has an answer here:
The Financial Times, like many other newspapers, has a strip under its title on the front page, split into several items (three in today’s paper — see illustration) promoting articles on internal pages. I was wanting to refer to one of these in a letter but realized I had no idea what the technical/journalistic term for it is. There must be one, because people working on the newspaper have to refer to it, but it’s something that is quite difficult to formulate an internet search for. Does anyone know what it is?
Apologies, but it didn’t occur to me that US journalistic usage may possibly be different from British usage, which is my practical concern in this case. I’ve addressed that myself.
