In formatting, bold type is a little bit darker and bigger than normal type. It is used to emphasize a few words as a bolded text can attract attention from the reader.
Usage[change | change source]
Markup languages provide different ways to make a word bold. For example:
- In HTML, the
</b>tags are used to surround the text that needs to be bolded.
- In Wikitext, an editor can bold a text using three apostrophes (
''') around the text to be bolded to produce the same results.
