HTML 'strong' Tag/Element


What Is an HTML "strong" Tag/Element?



A "strong" element is an inline element that you can use to specify text with a strong emphasis. Here are basic rules about "strong" elements:

  • "strong" elements are inline elements.
  • "strong" elements can not be used at block level.
  • Contents of "strong" elements will be displayed in bold by most browsers.
  • "strong" elements will be treated like "b" elements by most browsers.
  • "b" elements may not be supported in future versions of HTML, You should not use "b" elements in your XHTML.

Here is a good example of "strong" and "b" elements:

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
  <title>STRONG and B Elements</title>
  <p>The <strong>Rich</strong> must live more simply
  so that the <b>Poor</b> may simply live.</p> 

If you save the above document as strong_and_b.html, and view it with Internet Explorer, you will see that contents in both "strong" and "b" are displayed in bold as shown below:
