A correction to your table: FF2 and FF3 do use "bolder" for <B> and <STRONG>.  See layout/style/html.css, if you have the source code to hand.

You are seeing "401" because that's the (buggy, and improperly exposed in the DOM) internal representation Gecko uses for "bolder" on top of "normal"/"400".  If you applied <B> in the middle of a <span style="font-weight:500"> you'd see 501, etc.
