Hello everyone,

I have a string variable

myString = "This is boldface.  The rest is not."

When I execute myString, I want the first sentence to appear in bold type.  Selecting the sentence and formatting it as bold when I create the string does not work.  StringForm will do the trick, as in

	myString = StringForm["`` The rest is not.", Style["This is boldface", Bold]]

but, of course, the Head of myString will no longer be String.  Is there any other way to do this?

Gregory
