jabz, you're incorrect. Both <strong> and <b> are in both HTML and XHTML specs.
Now, there have been arguments that <strong> is more semantically correct than <b>, as <b> (for bold) implies presentational meaning (for example, how would content that was read by a screen reader apply "bold" type text when reading) whereas <strong> implies more than just a typographical meaning. In reality, though, there is no real difference.
