Bold red text

Hi - is there css code for bold red text?

I’d like <strong red>text</strong>

NOT <strong class=“red”>text</strong>

thanks! - Val

Nope, you can either do

<style type="text/css">
 span.bold-red {
    color: red;
    font-weight: bold;
<span class="bold-red">Some text</span>


<strong style="color: red;">Some text</strong>

Although I agree <strong red> would be nice :slight_smile:

That’s not valid HTML, you can use tags with propertys (<strong class=“”) and so on.

It’s best to use semantic markup.While <strong> is specifically used to give emphasis to text, you should be using a <p> tag for this.

If you wish to make it bold and red you can do this.

<p class=&#8221;treeHugger&#8221;>Text</p>

And the CSS for this

	font-weight:bold /*You can do 700 or 800 or 900 instead of bold so that way you can pick your boldness level*/

If you are marking up a paragraph, use the p tag for the job. Also, keep all ‘presentational’ names out of the markup.
You could do something like this:

<p class="swimmers">...</p>

.swimmers {
	color:  red;
	font-weight: bold;

Basically, the paragraph is conveying a relationship to the content within, which in this case is swimmers.

Hi - no it’s not a paragraph, occasionally in the middle of sentences I need bold red text, e.g. “Free Shipping [that’s bold red] in continental USA”

Guess I’ll stick to strong, span I use for yellow highlight, don’t want to confuse my pb (peabrain)

thanks! - Val

Remember the strong tag is to strongly emphasize text. If this is not what you are trying to convey with the strong tag, then a span would be most appropriate.

You can always redefine the strong in the css

strong {
     color: red;

or you can redefine strong for certain divs

.content strong {
     color: red;
<div class="content">
     <p>this is <strong>emphasized red</strong></p>
<p>this is <strong>emphasized not red</strong></p>

Or you could style certain strongs this way.



What are you trying to say copycat :).

I think poprock is automated… said the exact same as I did in another thread.
