The heading text in the HTML is bold. You can open the HTML in MS Word or Adobe writer to check it. However, the font of heading text is incorrect that looks bold. We have logged this problem in our issue tracking system as HTMLNET-3935. You will be notified via this forum thread once this issue is resolved.

We apologize for your inconvenience.
