Let's say the sentence is the following: It is raining outside.
Would you define span in an external style sheet such as:
and in your html, it would say: <p>It is <span class="bold">raining</span> outside.</p>
instead of not defining bold in the style sheet and just saying: <p>It is <b>raining</b> outside.</p> in your html.
Does using <span class="bold"> after defining it in a style sheet make it easier for the search engines to identify that the word raining is being bolded (being given more emphasis) than using the <b> tag?
