In this section, we will learn what HTML <strong> element is and how to use it.
What is <strong> Tag in HTML?
When there’s paragraph in an HTML document and we want to put an emphasis on part of that text, we can use the HTML <strong> element.
Basically, the body of this element is the place where we can put text content to be emphasized more compared to the surrounding text. Note that a screen reader software puts a heavy weight on the content within the body of <strong> element.
Note: browsers render the content in the body of <strong> element in bold face.
HTML <strong> Tag Syntax:
<strong> content </strong>
HTML <strong> Tag Values
The content of the <strong> element is a text we want to emphasize it by making its face bold.
Example: using <strong> tag in HTML
Difference between bold and strong
Other than HTML <strong> element, we have another element called <b> which stands for bold and it will turn the face of a text content into bold just like the way <strong> element does.
Now you might be wondering what’s the difference between these two elements then?
Well, semantically, the <strong> element puts a strong emphasis on the content within its body. You can see this especially when screen readers reach to a text inside a <strong> element, because they read this content with strong emphasis.
But HTML <b> element only turns the face of its text content into bold.
