Avoid using the 'bold' tag

Conformance levelSeverity levelSuccess Criteria
AWarnings1.3.1

The 'bold' tag is used to highlight text. Consider the following: If the text should be emphasized semantically, use the 'strong' tag instead. If the text is a heading, an 'H' tag (such as H1, H2, H3...) should be used instead. If the text is highlighted as a visual effect, CSS should be used to do this.
