Usage

The strong element is a phrasing-level element. It must not contain block-level elements, but it can contain other phrasing-level elements.

Notes

By default, most browsers render the strong element with bold text, but you can change that in CSS.

If you are looking to emphasize a word or phrase, the em element would be a better choice.

If you want to bold text, but the text is not important, you should use the CSS rule font-weight: bold on the appropriate element enclosing the text.
