try    strong {font-weight: bold; }

I have little idea why <strong>wouldn't work. It does come out a bit thin on my browser. Perhaps you should exaggerate the boldness by adding in some CSS.

Hope this helps!

do you have any CSS that modifies <strong> ??

In addition, try what Grimmjow stated "<b>".
