<STRONG> tag tutorials

  • Defines important text Strong emphasis

  • The strong tag is another phrase element. It makes text bold in most browsers.

  • You may wonder why there is a <B> (bold) tag and also a <strong> tag since both are displayed in bold type.

  • Technically, the strong tag was meant to provide emphasis aurally for people surfing the web using screen readers, while the bold tag was meant to provide emphasis visually.

  • A word stressed with the strong tag should be stressed aloud by the screen reader software, but a word stressed with the bold tag won't necessarily be stressed by screen readers.

  • It is supported by all major browsers like Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Opera Internet Explorer etc.
