Hello! Apologies for my first post being a troubleshooting issue. I have a website which is not driven via WordPress, but I use WordPress 3.3.1 for my blog (attached to the site). When I'm typing a post and highlight a word to be "bold", the word appears bold while I'm viewing in the post editor, but once published, any words selected with a bold typeface appear normal.
I mainly use Chrome on Mac (Snowleopard in this case), but the problem occurs in Safari, as well. Also, I am able to italicize any words and they appear correctly italicized when published. The problem appears to be specific to selecting bold.
-The issue also appears to exist regardless of working in "Visual" or "HTML" modes.
-I also noticed that bold typefaces are rendered as normal when text is cut/pasted from other programs such as Pages '09.
I'm not terribly skilled with HTML or WordPress, as of the moment, so I apologize if this is a simple issue, but I appreciate any help that can be provided.
