  • <b>

In HTMl5 the <b> tag is used to markup text as bold without conveying any extra importance, <b> tag is basically meant for specifying bold text. Apart from that we can also use the CSS as ‘font-weight’ property to set text as bold text.

For example: key words in a text, product name, etc.

  • <hr>

In HTML5, the <hr> tag displays a horizontal rule, and defines a change in the content. Meant for declaring a paragraph-level thematic break in a web page. In previous versions of html it was used mainly for presentational purposes (Horizontal rule).

  • <i>

In HTML5 the <i> tag is now used for a span of text, usually an offset from the normal text, ex: technical terms, phrase, foreign words, etc. to style the text in italics you can also use CSS ‘font-style’ property.

NOTE: It is recommended wherever possible instead of using the i element to use for instance the em element for marking up stress emphasis, or the dfn element to mark up the defining instance of a term!
