No BOLD setting on BB10 dev alpha Webworks HTML font ?



I am using a monospace font on the BB10 Dev Alpha for my WebWorks app. Actually, the exact styling I am applying is as follows:


font: 84px normal Courier New, monospace; font-weight:normal;


On Ripple Emulator it shows up as Courier New and I can see both BOLD and NORMAL versions of this font on the screen at the same time, no problem.


However, on the Dev Alpha, the font is not Courier but something else. Not sure exactly but it is still monospace which is ok, but I cannot get a BOLD version of this font to display... It still looks the same as NORMAL even though I use <bold> tags for different parts of my HTML. 


Is this just a BB10 Dev Alpha issue? Or is it because I am not specifying the correct font name? 


By the way, on the Playbook the font DOES INDEED DISPLAY as Courier and has BOLD/NORMAL variations which show up for my app. Please, any help would be appreciated.

Haven't tested, but did you try the <strong> tag?
