They look the same to me...

bSample text
strongSample text
iSample text
emSample text

I won't pretend to have the language skills to understand this explanation but anyway:

And to add to my confusion, HTML5 apparently redefines the b and i tags to have the semantic meaning it once lacked:

Personally, I'm too lazy and uneducated to understand the difference, except perhaps as it pertains to using a screen-reader, so I use the method with the least keystrokes. I don't design web pages professionally though. If I did, I'd probably start using strong and em and pretend I knew why. :)

RE: Html Tag

Strong tag to make the text bold it also looks bold in most browsers.It is Logical Tag.

Bold tag to make the text bold it does look bold.
The b tags are primarily for visual effect on a page when designing layout.

If You want HTML Tags in Briefly See this here you can get lot of HTML Tags with Example.

RE: Html Tag

"b" is deprecated. So is "I" (use em, instead). That's the difference.
