<strong> element indicates that its contents have strong importance, seriousness, or urgency. Browsers typically render the contents in bold type.
<p><strong>This text is Strong.</strong></p>
New developers are often confused at seeing multiple elements that produce similar results. <b> and <strong> are a common example, since they both render the contents in bold type. What's the difference? Which should you use?
By default, the visual result is the same. However, the semantic meaning is different.
The <strong> element is for content that is of greater importance, while the <b> element is used to draw attention to text without indicating that it's more important.
<strong> element is fully supported by all browsers:
<strong> tag does not support any standard attributes. See HTML Standard Attributes Reference
<strong> tag supports the global attributes described in HTML Global Attributes Reference
<strong> tag supports the event attributes described in HTML Events Reference
