Search web pages for bold text

Question : How can I change the color of text highlighted as bold on a Web page? I search the Federal Register for key words (see www.gpoaccess.gov/fr/advanced.html). The term I searched for is returned in bold in the text of the complete Federal Register record. Sometimes the bold text is difficult to find when the complete record is large. Is there a setting on my Web browser I can change so that bold text is shown as both bold and red? The workaround I have tried is to save the record to HTML. Then I open it in FrontPage and search for the tag STRONG to find the bold text. Is there any easier way?

Answer : There's an easier way than digging into the HTML. Highlight the text in your browser and Copy/Paste it into Microsoft Word. Press Ctrl-H to invoke the Find/Replace dialog. Click the More button. Click in the Find what box, click the Format button, choose Font from the menu, select Bold, and click OK. Then click in the Replace with box and do the same, but in the Font dialog select Bold and Red. When you click on the Replace All button, Word will replace all bolded text with the same text formatted both bold and red. You'll be able to scan the text quickly to find the important items. You can even save the page as a DOC file, if that's useful. There's one minor oddity: If the bold text is part of a phrase that has a hyperlink, the entire phrase will be made bold and red.
