when i went to bed last night this text was bold. today it is not. it still is in firefox and ie
.links2 {
FONT-SIZE: 14px;
COLOR: #000099;
FONT-FAMILY: Arial, serif; font-style: normal;
font-weight: 600;
line-height: 16pt

Quick test: change "600" to "bold" and then to "900". Make sure it works as intended all ways. 600 is an extremely awkward number: normal weight may be either 400 or 500 depending on what's going on in the font; bold starts at 700.

Yeah I found the answer elsewhere. Arial only goes by 'normal' or 'bold' and the browser chooses whatever it is closest to when a number is used. Not sure what changed overnight that 600 was previously closest to 'bold' and now is closest to 'normal'.
