Use the <strong> or <b> tag to format bold text. It can be used in conjunction with other tags (italic, underline, etc.). The <strong> tag is preferred for ADA compliance (Americans with Disabilities Act). Whereas both tags produce a bold word on the screen, the <strong> tag also tells screen-reading software to emphasize the word.

The code requires an opening and a closing tag:

<b> – opening tag
</b> – closing tag

<strong> – opening tag
</strong> – closing tag

All text between the opening and closing tags will be bold. The tag has no other effect on non-text elements.
