<b> element is typically used to apply bold highlighting to
the content of the element. This element is part of the highlighting domain. Use this element only when a more semantically appropriate element is not available. For example, for specific items such as GUI controls, use the
<b>element differently, just like any other element can be restyled. Thus, it is not the case that content in
<b>elements will necessarily be bold.
See appendix for information about this element in OASIS document type shells.
