HTML formatting tags

HTML uses tags <b> ("bold") and <i> ("italic") to format the output text, such as bold  or  italic
These HTML tags are called formatting tags.

Usually the tag <strong> is used instead of the bold tag <b>, and <em> is used instead of the <i> tag.

However, these tags have different meanings:
<b> and <i> define bold or italic text.

<strong> or <em> means that the text you want to render is important, so highlight it.

All major browsers today can render fonts with various effects. However, browsers may support better rendering in the future.

<em> Define focus on text
<i> Define italics
<small> Define trumpet
<strong> Definition accentuated
