    Make it bold NOT WORKING.

    Hello All,

    I need the below code to make all the text appear on the screen bold. I have only figured out how to change part of it. Could someone help with making all the text bold?

    <html>
    <body>
    <script language='JavaScript'> //set the language
    a=(prompt('please enter the CD Title:',0)); // enter the cd title promt
    b=parseFloat(prompt('please enter the CD Cost:',0)); // enter the cd cost promt

    document.write(' your CD Title is: ' ,a.bold()); //write the cd title to the screen in bold
    document.write(' your CD Cost is: ' ,b); //write the cd cost to the screen

    </script>
    </body>
    </html>

    Why don't you just do that in CSS? Why use Javascript?

    The class instructor may have wanted it done in JavaScript.

    Your code works: http://jsfiddle.net/EzEWf/

    Have you tried the code in all browsers? No idea why your code isn't working for you. However, the following code produces the same result:

    Code:
    a=(prompt('please enter the CD Title:',0)); // enter the cd title promt
    b=parseFloat(prompt('please enter the CD Cost:',0)); // enter the cd cost promt 
    
    document.writeln(' your CD Title is: <b>' + a + '</b>'); //write the cd title to the screen in bold 
    document.writeln(' your CD Cost is: ' + b); //write the cd cost to the screen

    Hello

    I don't think i made it clear. I need all the text to appear bold not just the CD title.

    It needs to look like this

    your CD Title is: eastenders your CD Cost is: 544

    Currently it looks like this

    your CD Title is: eastenders your CD Cost is: 544

    Any ideas? Every time i try to add the code in it stops working

    Try this:
    HTML Code:
    <html>
    <body>
    <script language='JavaScript'>	//set the language
    a=(prompt('please enter the CD Title:',0)); // enter the cd title promt
    b=parseFloat(prompt('please enter the CD Cost:',0)); // enter the cd cost promt 
    
    document.write('<b>'); // beginning bold tag
    
    document.write(' your CD Title is: ' ,a); //write the cd title to the screen
    document.write(' your CD Cost is:  ' ,b); //write the cd cost to the screen 
    
    document.write('</b>'); // closing bold tag
    
    </script>
    </body>

    Code:
    <html>
    <body>
    <script type='text/JavaScript'>    //set the language
    
    a=(prompt('please enter the CD Title:',0)); // enter the cd title promt
    
    b=parseFloat(prompt('please enter the CD Cost:',0)); // enter the cd cost promt
    
    document.write(' your CD Title is: ' + a.bold() ); //write the cd title to the screen in bold
    
    document.write( (' your CD Cost is: ' + b ).bold() ); //write the cd cost to the screen
    </script>
    </body>
    </html>
    Where used, return should be executed unconditionally and always as the last statement in the function.

    That's my signature, it's not part of the damn post!

    I'm sorry, your original post is clear, I didn't read it properly.

    Anyway, others have answered now so your problem appears to be solved.
