XSL Transformations

I'm using XSL and XML to render DB content.  My first attached snippet is the XSL, the 2nd is the CSS values..

I'm using this to render a chat/discussion. It basically gives me what I want like below:

My Name
Date
Comments......

            Your Name
            Date
            Comments......

My Name
Date
Comments......

            Your Name
            Date
            Comments......


etc..

My question is, how do I make "My Name" and "Your Name" fields render in bold?

Thanks

			 <xsl:value-of select="./team_member_name"/><br/><xsl:value-of select="./comment_date"/><br/>
			<xsl:value-of select="./comment"/>
		</div>
		</div>
	</xsl:template>

ahh, simpler than I expected! I was trying to wrap it with <span> and couldn't get it to work..  then I thought the closing </b> had to instead be <b/>...  Figures I wouldn't try the most obvious. Still pretty new to XSL transformations..

thank you

Hi,

this is not about xslt, but about html. In xslt you can use any html tag you want.
