I suppose you could use the old text methods: _wow_, *hurray*. Or, maybe italics. You don't see a lot of bold in the text in books, do you?(And, please forgive me, but I find avoiding the use of "bold text" to be extremely difficult, as in even this very sentence!!!)
Actually, I think a lot of text books would actually be improved (and, boy, I really want to use "bold" on the previous word!!!) if they used "bold" to emphasize the major points that they are trying to present. (I would put a "happy face" here, but this web software doesn't seem to have that capability anymore....)I suppose you could use the old text methods: _wow_, *hurray*. Or, maybe italics.

Well, I can now see what that URL is because it's fully visible in the this website's "editor" software, but on the actual page itself (as you can see directly above) it is presented as "http://blogs.msdn.com/b/oldnewthing/.../16/90448.aspx", although actually clicking on it (which I had not tried) does take you to the proper place (in a new browser tab, no less!). I learned something new!
