    bold underline anomoly (Word 2000 SR-1)

    Whenever over half the characters in a line are bolded, then underlined, the underlining appears to be bolded too. I want underlining that is basically single line thickness, not bolded thickness. In other words, we want words bolded, but not the underlining bolded.
    Any suggestions or solutions?
    Thanks.

    A less than elegant work-around attached. Put an extra space after bolded portion. Remove underlining from that space. Format / Font / Character Spacing tab and play with condensing it until it's all but invisible.

    I first tried hidden, but when you turned show/hide off the bolded underscoring returned.

    Another "less than elegant" solution is to put the text you want in bold in another font that is inherently bold (eg Albertus Extra Bold). That will keep the thin single-underline appearance you're after - the judicious use of a suitable font like this can add to the emphasis you're after too.
