PopupWindow Problem

Here is a Popup Window

thisContent = Style["Max. No. on Graph", Bold];
PopupWindow["xxx",  thisContent,  Background->LightYellow]

I would like to add to thisContent an explanation of what "Max. No. on Graph" means
in Plain text. 

For example:

"Max. No. on Graph -  This option means ... "
where only "Max. No. on Graph" is in Bold and 
"This option means ... " is in Plain text.

The simple, intuitive solution,
thisContent =  StringJoin[Style["Max. No. on Graph", Bold], " This option means... "] 
does not work.

thisContent = {Style["Max. No. on Graph", Bold], "  This option means ... "};
PopupWindow["xxx",  thisContent, Background->LightYellow]


thisContent = {Style["Max. No. on Graph", Bold], "  This option means ... "};
thisContent = Apply[Sequence, thisContent];
PopupWindow["xxx",  thisContent, Background->LightYellow]

do not work either.  

How can I do this?

Thank you in advance.
