[fxruby-users] How can you bold the text in a label?

I'm not at my development computer right now so I can't tell you the exact
code I tried, but I can say that, yes, I did try to use a nil/empty string
font face and Ruby choked on it -- didn't like it.
I tried "system" as a font face and that *really* didn't do what I wanted
I entered "arial" and then the one label font changed - I had forgotten that
the default system font is not Arial. So the one label really stands out
now because it's a totally different font.. which is not what I want.
I don't want to hard-code a font that is different from the system font,
especially if the app will run on different platforms and I don't know what
the default fonts will be.
I can try some other variations tonight. I've already spent over 4 hours on
this and haven't gotten it to work. Maybe I just needed a break to see
something that I've missed.
I thought it would be something that would have come up by now.. I've seen
lots of apps where a label is bolded to indicate a required field. I just
haven't found any FXRuby examples of this *without* also specifying the font
at the same time.
