Basically I think you're on top of it -- you can have an ordinary
weight or you can have a bold weight, but if you try to specify exactly
HOW bold you want it, you're in for a headache. Theoretically we should
be able to do all kinds of things with bolds, but support is miserable.
As far as I can tell most browsers default to the "highest" bold
setting, though I may be wrong.
