When you want to make a link in bold, do you put strong tags around or inside your anchor tags?
Usually neither. "Bold" is a presentational property, so I'd typically just use CSS to make it bold. If, however, the content of the link is meant to have some emphasis applied to it (for example, such that someone browsing with an screen reader might need to notice a difference between the link and the surrounding text), then I would use the strong tag and put it within the anchor tags. The reason being that you could, in theory, use a background image on the <a> element and then hide the text within the <strong> tag. That is, it's offers more flexibility with regards to styling the link.
