Thanks,
but having to manually select the same text in a hundred places where I need 
to change plain to bold is onerous.  Would like to do it all at once.  Does 
Mathematica's Find & Replace really fall short here?

Select the text you want to make Bold in the Text cell.
Use Menu > Format > Face > Bold  and the selected text will change to Bold.

You can also use the Format menu to change other characteristics of the
selected text.

Hi,

I've got a notebook with a cell of style text, and trying to everywhere
replace a letter having a plain typeface with one having a bold typeface.
In the "Find and Replace Dialog" I enter a plain letter in the "Find" box
and a bold letter in the "Replace with" box.
But after executing "Replace All", the replacements in the cell are all in
plain typeface.
How can I make the replacements bold?

Thanks in advance,
Dave Snead
