The b element (<b>) historically was used to tell the browser to make the nested text bold. While the <b> element is widely supported in browsers, its use is not recommended, as CSS can be used to achieve the same effect. In HTML5, it merely signifies that the text should be stylistically distinguished in some way.
The <b> element is used to make the nested tag bolded. The use of the <b> is not recommended according to HTML 5 standards as the bold effect can achieved using CSS.
This example uses the b element to make the text bold.
This text appears bolded
