    Yeah they do look the same, but strong is more recommended for technical reasons that you can google. I was just wondering because Cortana didn't list it

    How do you 2 know that this "strong" is recommended for this forum???
    It's not what google recommend that counts, it's what this site can support that matters.

    ^ yup. And Google isn't always correct. Many websites use the exact same coding I listed by default. That's where I'd say you have to use your knowledge of HTML and CSS, and how it works on different devices/browsers.
    Keep in mind that not everyone have new devices/browsers nor are able to even get them. Coding you're saying about isn't supported by any of the old browsers/some devices and I personally see no point in using it for regular forum posts. Guess that answers your question.

    To make it be even more understandable, I can say that strong is used mainly by people that work with HTML5, which isn't being used as the main coding by default on many sites still due to a big amount of people with outdated devices, and HTML5 is quite new as well. To make it work properly, you'd have to tie the core coding of the site itself to older versions of HTML, otherwise people with older devices won't see the proper result of your coding; it will be just broken. It's a vast amount of time and work to be put into coding something, not really worth it.

    Regular bold and italic codes are used on over 90% of sites by default for regular text posting, while strong and emphasis are mostly used in the core coding and still are linked to those regular bold and italic codes. They do the exact same job, the difference is only in where they are used and what version of HTML is in the core. I personally wouldn't recommend newest coding by thinking of technical recommendations, not Google recommendations.

    Okay okay, don't hurt me. I don't do much Web Dev so don't blame me for trusting Google. Just a suggestion ^^

    I don't know if you read my original post fully, so I'll leave this here:
    Note: do not add any exclamation points to the title, it will break the whole thread. Having too many spoilers within the same post might also break the thread.

    (ol and ul)?

    Only the codes that you see listed in the original post.
    Actually, you could try, but the chance of causing a glitch will increase that way.
    I do hope they will be added to the list of recognized codes. They seem useful in many ways.
