Strong or Bold Text

Sometimes we need to highlight a text making it bold, without assigning it a heading tag.  This can be applied to a whole text or some words within a text.  
The most common tags for this are <strong> and <b>

For example, if we want to make the word HTML bold within a paragraph we may write:


<!doctype html>   
<html>
<head>
    <title>My Learning Plan</title>
</head>
<body>
    <p>It is important to learn <b>HTML</b>, as it is  the essential
    language for describing <strong>web pages</strong> to the browser.</p>
</body>
</html> 

The result will be something like:

 

Notes:

  • If we get a formatting style that will apply on many locations in our web page or set of pages, we may use a technique called cascading style sheets, which is covered in other tutorials.
