Version: 2.0, 3.2, 4.0

Compability: Explorer 4, 5  Netscape 4, 6

Syntax:
<strong> ... </strong>

The <strong> tag is is used to provide a strong emphasis when displaying the enclosed word or phrase. Most browsers do this by rendering the selected text in bold which makes the characters thicker and slightly bigger in appearance than the surrounding text. Of course, you can also do this using the b tag.

If you wish to have less emphasis, you can use the em tag which usually renders in italics, rather than in bold.
 
The closing tag is mandatory.

Code:
Did you know that the <b>Guru</b> is over <strong>800</strong> years old?

Did you know that the <b>Guru</b> is over <em>800</em> years old?
Output:
Did you know that the Guru is over 800 years old?
Did you know that the Guru is over 800 years old?
