What does stylistic offset mean in HTML5?

I read that the <b> element in HTML 5 is used for stylistically offset text. What does it mean?

"Offset" is meant to "stand out from the rest". "Stylistically" is meant as opposed to semantically; that is, the element in question does not really matter from the rest, but stands out solely for stylistic purposes.

In short: <b>

Used to highlight content purely for design reasons. Unlike other semantic tags such as <strong>

that, for example, it will make the screen reader pay special attention to the word while reading.
