    Description

      Accessibility rules require that bold text use the <strong> tag. Currently the bold atto plugin uses the <b> tag if the browser forces it. Change the plugin to ensure only the <strong> tag is used.

      This code was migrated from the Brickfield Education Labs Editor accessibility efforts.
