    I am going to guess you are referring to a vB board...
    My guess would be that it is in the stylesheet....

    I would think you could just go to the phrase manager in the admincp and edit the sticky phrase to something like:

    HTML:
    <b><span style="color: blue">Sticky</span></b>

    or a more semantic <strong class="blue"></strong> (and then add .blue{color: blue} to the CSS)?

    It is a bit better to define a css class, you can change it easier.

    ^ Of course all of the above would work, but I suspect it's something he will change only once, so it's not really necessary to go through the trouble to define it in a CSS class.

    What's the advantage of this vs. using <b></b>? Just curious, is it more efficient or something else?

    <b> is a presentational element, basically meaning "make this bold". <strong> is a structural element, meaning "read/render this with strong emphasis," which some browsers then make bold.

    I prefer <strong> over <b> and <em> over <i>. I'm not sure if <b> is deprecated or anything though.

    See: <b> vs. <strong> - <i> vs. <em>
    and: <em> vs.<i> and <strong> vs. <b> - HTML / CSS answers

    Yeah, <i>, <b>, <font> and all those old tags that style the page are archaic nowadays. Always try to use a tag that describes what you're trying to show with the content (semantics :heart:).

    But what if you'd like to display them differently in other styles? ;)

    with
    <span style="color:blue; font-weight:bold">Sticky</span>

    I'd suggest you (again) to use <strong class="sticky_color">Sticky</strong> and then add .sticky_color{color: blue} to your CSS. SEs will know that text have some sort of a bit more importance, and by using a CSS class, you can simply modify it later on for any theme you use.

    EDIT: I'm not sure about what $vbphrase[sticky_thread] retrieves, so I'd try what happends with <strong class="sticky_color">$vbphrase[sticky_thread]</strong> (for more language support).

    Combus, $vbphrase[sticky_thread] is the variable for 'Sticky:'.

    In the phrase manager you could change that to anything. I have it on Pisoga as 'Nebai~' (means sticky in Jap)

    ohh thanks for confirming that :) Then <strong class="sticky_color">$vbphrase[sticky_thread]</strong> should work nicely :D
