It will be a numerical value; the precise value would depend on the font
and what weights it provides.

<dt class="label">bolder</dt>
<dd><p>Specifies the next weight that is assigned to a font that is
darker than the inherited one. If there is no such weight, it simply
results in the next darker numerical value (and the font remains
unchanged), unless the inherited value was "900", in which case the
resulting weight is also "900".</p></dd>
