Chapter 15.  Formatting Text with Styles > Applying Bold Formatting

Applying Bold Formatting

Bold formatting is probably the most common and effective way to make text stand out. Using style sheets gives you much more flexibility with bold text, providing relative values or allowing you to get rid of it altogether.

To apply bold formatting:

1.
Type font-weight: .

2.
Type bold to give an average bold weight to the text.

3.
Or type bolder or lighter to use a value relative to the current weight.

4.
Or type a multiple of 100 between 100 and 900, where 400 represents book weight and 700 represents bold.
