If you provided a link to the page, then it might be simpler for people to look at it. :)
We have it setup so that the search engine reads bold, but the CSS style sheet turns it back to normal appearing text to the human eye.
What's the point of this? Search engines don't care about "bold" or not. They may place certain emphasis on headings and such, but "bold" is almost certainly not a valid SEO technique. Proper semantic markup is far, far more important.
