Just a quick note that none of b, i, u, or strong are deprecated in HTML5, and all of them have semantic meaning.

  • b - Bring attention to something without conveying importance
  • i - Text set off from the rest of the text, for example like an internal monologue
  • u - Non-textually annotated text, such as for misspelled words
  • strong - For conveying importance, seriousness, or urgency
