<bold> Bold

Used to mark text that should appear in bold face.


Ensuring that a text component remains bold is not as common in journal publishing as (for example) italics, since bold is typically reserved for headings. But any text may be marked as bold and kept as bold or toggled, using the @toggle attribute.
Using the Toggle Switch with Bold
The @toggle attribute can control the behavior of the <bold> element. For example, setting the @toggle attribute to “no” would mean that material marked as bold will always be bold, even in a context such as a bold heading. In contrast, if the @toggle attribute is set to “yes” on a <bold> element, and if the formatting context then imposes bold (whether due to another <bold> element, a stylesheet, some CSS, or other means), then the bolding would be turned off within that context, making the emphasized text emphasized by contrast (typographically distinct from its surroundings) but no longer bold.

 is a specific nucleotide of <italic>M. tuberculosis</italic>
 (<xref ref-type="bibr" rid="B8">8</xref>, <xref ref-type="bibr"

 sequencing. Furthermore, PCR sequencing misidentified codon 531 as
 T<bold>C</bold>G, which reflects the rifampin-susceptible strain. However,
 the second nucleotide at codon 531, which is the most frequent site of
 mutation related to rifampin resistance, was determined as
