Yes, you are correct. It slipped my mind that you cannot use html elements in a text area without some external plugin (i.g. jQuery). I don't know if it'll satisfy your requirements but I'd recommend using.
<div contenteditable="true"></div>
That will allow you to use it almost as a textarea, and it will evaluate your <b></b> tags or any other html you'd like to use

Maybe be a little more specific so we can identify your use case. If CSS isn't an option, maybe html's <b></b> tags will help? The question is a bit too broad to provide a good answer.

I tried <b></b> tag inside that textarea. And I have tried CSS style also but I didn't get solution.I am attachanging my code bellow.
<apex:page controller="RadioButton">
<apex:form id="form1">
 <textarea cols="50" rows="5" escape="false">
       <b>BUSINESS TERMS AND CONDTIONS:</b><br/>
       1.Many types of website will need specialised terms and conditions <br/>to ensure legal compliance and adequate management of legal risks. In addition to this generic template, we supply a wide range of more specific website terms of use templates.
               
       </textarea>
            
  </apex:form>
</apex:page>
