Re: Styling the selected Tab's label in TabView

The only reason for the Graphics[] in the example you started with is because 
that example requires the use of Disk[]/Circle[] to produce the intended effect.

You don't need a Graphics[] wrapper in your case, and removing it makes your
code more comprehensible and as well as making it work as I believe you 
intended.

DynamicModule[{selected}, 
 TabView[Table[
   With[{i = i}, 
    Style[labels[[i]], 
      FontWeight -> 
       Dynamic[If[i === selected, Bold, Plain]]] -> ("Hello " <> 
       labels[[i]] <> "!")], {i, Length[labels]}], Dynamic[selected]]]
