font-weight: bold, <b> and <strong> are all ignored when applied to a Gill Sans
font. See attachment for example.

Either the installed font does not actually have a bold weight, or the weight
calculation code in font land is failing...

unapersson@hotmail.com, I don't have access to "Gill Sans" font. Could you try
loading the page in both Communicator and IE and see if they support bold for
this font. An additional test would be to try selecting "Gill Sans" in Microsoft
Word and see if you can make it bolder.  It is likely that "Gill Sans" only
supports a normal font weight. Thanks.
I've tried it in both Netscape 4 and IE 4, and it works on both.
