on html/css level you can use 
        style="font-weight: bold" 

     This works in IE and Mozilla 

on MathML level you can use

  <mstyle mathvariant="bold">      ...      </mstyle>         

     This works also in IE and Mozilla

In the spec I have not found a description of a feature like LaTeX's
\boldmath. In other words, how does a MathML formula react to font settings
in its enclosing environment, esp. bold font? We will definitely require
such a feature, e.g. in bold titles. I would not like to see each token
separately tagged as bold.

Would the CSS style attribute be the way to specify this:
style="font-weight: bold" ? I see that Mathplayer interprets it this way. In
Mozilla it does not seem to have any effect.

With kind regards,
