14. Strong words! Misleading


Bold the word 'sing' on line 7.
Bold the word 'too' on line 8.

Change bold to strong. There is a difference.

You get an error when using <b> and have to use <strong>

Bold is a style while <strong> is more than that.

More about it here


The lesson is about <strong></strong>, not <b></b> (is it even mentioned?) and since both have the same style effect (bold) we're splitting hairs here.

Granted, one is semantic while the other is strictly visual, and if we only want bold text which does not imply emphasis or change of voice, then <b></b> is the way to go. I don't see any confusion in this lesson, as it stands.
