Set the Font Boldness

Use the font-weight property to set boldness of text. Font weight can be set to normal, bold, or as a "thickness" value between 100 and 900.

<p style="font-weight:normal;">Font weight set to normal</p>

Font weight set to normal

<p style="font-weight:bold;">Font weight set to bold</p>

Font weight set to bold

<p style="font-weight:600;">Font weight set to 600</p>

Font weight set to 600

To set a bold font for some text within a paragraph, place the text to be set to bold within a <span> element, and set the font-weight property of the span to the desired value. An example is shown below.

<p>To set a bold font for some text within a paragraph,
 <span style="font-weight:bold;"> place the text to be
set to bold within a span element</span>, and set the
font-weight property of the span to the desired value.</p>

To set a bold font for some text within a paragraph, place the text to be set to bold within a span element, and set the font-weight property of the span to the desired value.

Note, some webpage designers think everything should be done with CSS styles and the use of html tags is obsolete. I disagree because it's so easy to just place the text to be set to bold within <b></b> tags. An example is shown below.

<p>To set a bold font for some text within a paragraph,
<b>place the text to be set to bold within a span element
</b>, and set the font-weight property of the span to the
desired value.</p>

To set a bold font for some text within a paragraph, place the text to be set to bold within a span element, and set the font-weight property of the span to the desired value.

The developers of html version 4 thought just using <b> for "bold" was too difficult to understand, so they added the <strong> tag, which does exactly the same thing.
