Bold New Initiatives

I'm back!

And I'm all aflutter with the latest news from PubMed New and Noteworthy, which reads, in full, "PubMed search terms are now automatically displayed in bold in the search results."

Automatically! In bold!

This appears to be a substitute for the My NCBI option to have search terms highlighted (in your choice of exciting colors), since my search terms are highlighted when I'm signed into my account, but emboldened when I'm not.

I imagine it's probably helpful to searchers, especially those using keywords rather than MeSH terms, since being able to quickly spot the search terms may allow for speedier elimination of results in which they show up in other contexts than the one of interest.

Nice, PubMed.
