Jquery Label In-line Style Not Working?

I'm trying to change part of the Label html like so. Problem: font is still bold

<label id="caption">New image name: (optional)</label>
$("#caption").html("Image saved as: " + "<br/> <style=\"font-weight: normal\">" + data + "</style>");

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

What is the point of the style tag? That won't do anything

$("#caption").html("Image saved as:<br/>" + data);
