at the moment I have
 
$(document).ready(function() {
    $(".meIntro p:contains('Name:')").css("font-weight", "bold");
   
});

Open in new window

But this makes bold the entire paragraph not the word ........
What I need is 3 specific words .. Name: Location: Skills: to be Bold

Also note ... this paragraph is the 3rd paragraph in a div with a class called meIntro

I need this to happen when document.ready
