element—one of several font style elements in HTML
4—renders its content in a boldface version of the font face
governing the next outermost HTML container. You can nest multiple
font style elements to create combined styles, such as bold italic
It is up to the browser to fatten boldface display by calculating the
character weight or by perhaps loading a bold version of the
currently specified font. If you are striving for font perfection, it
is best to use style sheets (and perhaps downloadable fonts) to
specify a true bold font face, rather than risk the browser’s
extrapolation of a boldface from a system font. The
font-weight style attribute provides quite
granular control over the degree of bold applied to text if the font
face supports such fine-tuning.
You can take advantage of the containerness of this element by
assigning style sheet rules to some or all
elements in a page. For example, you may wish all
B elements to be in a red color. By assigning the
can do it to all elements with only a tiny bit of code.
Although this element is not deprecated in HTML 4, it would not be surprising to see it lose favor to style sheets in the future.
