I am using MS Access to generate emails with specific formatting.  From what I can find <b> = bold and <strong> = important text . .  but what is the real difference between the two.  When should one be used over the other?

Both end up being displayed similarly in a browser, but they do represent different things. <b> is to denote that text be displayed in a bold font. <strong> is for denoting that a piece of text have emphasis. For display purposes, this often means bolding the text; for a screen reader, the reader would add stress to the pronunciation of the word.
