 Are you referring to the group type directory message or the group type
 list function?  I don't mind if we make the change to the directory type
 message, although the change is quite trivial.

 FWIW, `<strong>` vs. `<b>` - https://developer.mozilla.org/en-


 strong is a logical state, and bold is a physical state.

 Logical states separate presentation from the content, and by doing so
 allow for it to be
 expressed in many different ways. Perhaps instead of rendering some text
 as bold you want
 to render it red, or a different size, or underlined, or whatever.

 It makes more sense to change the presentational properties of strong than
 it does bold.
 This is because bold is a physical state; there is no separation of
 presentation and content,
 and making bold do anything other than bold text would be confusing and

 `<strong>` sounds like the correct use here, but I could be wrong.


 On the other hand, `bp_group_type_list()` is new, so we can make whatever
 changes that we need to.  Right now, the function was created to output a
 comma-delimited list (I guess the function name isn't named appropriately
 :) ).

 List items are not really appropriate for comma-delimited lists unless you
 want to use CSS `:before` and `:after` declarations, which complicates

 I guess it all depends on what you want to do with the function.  If you
 plan on using this function for list items, then the function needs to be
 tweaked to accommodate it.
