Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Sign into Gmail. 2. Look at the "Archive" button. 3. Use Firebug to toggle the font-weight property, and watch the text expand/contract. Actual Results: The text is bolded twice. Expected Results: Bold font-weight and strong/b are redundant; their effects should not stack.
Created attachment 502265 [details] Nested 'strong' display Fx4 vs. Chrome10 Another example of this: http://www.guardian.co.uk/money/2011/jan/08/self-build-dream-home - see the 'Finding finance' H2 after the fifth paragraph. It's coded as: <h2> <strong>Finding finance</strong> </h2> Chrome 10 and Opera 11 both display it as 'normal' strong. Fx4 and IE9 display it as 'extra' strong. See screen grab.
