The strong element gives strong emphasis to its contents. Visual browsers typically render strong as bold text, but authors can suggest a rendering using style sheets. Since strong is a structural element, it carries meaning, making it preferable to font style elements such as b when strong emphasis is the intended meaning.

For weaker emphasis, use the em element.
