In general, visually both are considered to be the same. But *strong* have better semantic for web parsers or SEO because it emphasize the highlighted word instead of just displaying the text in *bold* with b tag.


Bold will always be displayed as a fat text. Strong depends on the browser how it will be displayed. You will use the strong if you want to emphasis the word.


Actually,i dont really know what STRONG is used for Help please
