Bold and Strong

One of the most common types of semantic markup is to “bold” some text via the bold element. The element used for identifying bold text is <b>...</b>.

However, it is important to recognize that the use of bold text does not imply any extra meaning. For this reason, you are encouraged to use the strong element. The use of a strong element ( <strong>...</strong> ) indicates that its content has strong importance. By default, browsers will show the contents of strong elements in bold.

<p>This is a <b>bold</b> element.</p>

<p>This is a <strong>strong</strong> element.</p>

</a> </div>
