Tutorial 3 - Nested lists

Step 14 - Making main list items bold

To finish off, you can make the main list items "bold" and the nested list items "normal". Keep in mind that you must specify "normal" for the nested lists, otherwise the "bold" will cascade down and they will become "bold" too.

Finished!
