The HTML <b> tag is an inline element that is used capture readers attention to it's content. This was once known as the Boldface element.
<b>Text displayed in bold</b>
<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <title>HTML b tag<title> </head> <body> <p> Hello.. <b>This is Bold text.</b></p> </body> </html>
Hello.. This is Bold text.
The <b> tag should not be confused with <strong> tag. We usually use
<b> tag to display names of something (Ex: name of a book) or a summary to draw the attention of a reader, but does not have have a special importance. On the other hand,
<strong> tag is used to display some text that has special importance.
You should not use
<b> tag to style the text. Instead, you should use the CSS
<p style="font-weight:bold">This text is bold</p>
This text is bold
