Not a bug Inconsistent use of <b>, <strong> and no formatting for placeholders

The following phrase uses <strong> to emphasise the placeholders (which looks best in my opinion):

The following phrase uses <b> (which has slightly different formatting):

The following phrases us no formatting:

There may be others. I just did a search for the word placeholder, but there may be some that don't have the word placeholder in the phrase.

I think the markup can vary based on the context of how the data is presented. For example, I think the bold look is reasonable for custom fields based on how it's presented. In terms of most of the placeholders relating to emailing users, that could perhaps go with the "strong" formatting but I don't think it needs to be presented 100% identically because they're mostly not interspersed within a list.
