In addition, none of the b element examples and only one of two of the i
element examples actually use classes. It would be good to add something like
these to the b examples
* class="component" (or part-name)
* class="object"
* class="opening-text" (or lede, lead, intro, opening-phrase etc)
and to the second i example
* class="dream"

Finally with the lede sentence example you might want to change it to “<b>Six
abandoned kittens</b> have…”, as it’d be more appropriate to use <strong> (it
looks like a summary of the article which would be more important), <p
class="lede">, h2 + p {}, or h2 p:first-of-type {} to embolden the entire
