STRONG is better than <B> because it can be interpreted by a web-to-voice
browser ... it indicates that the words are to be emphasized (louder, or with
a pause, or other emphasis)

<B> is just a visual thing ... character markup, and something that shuold
be replaced eventually by <SPAN>

It probably won't help you with the SEs, but we yuppies with talking browsers
would appreciate your selective use of it. Please do not make an entire page
STRONG. ... having one's browser yelling at one is disconcerting whilst driving
one's beemer.
