Ah.  Are you running Emacs under X11 in xterm or konsole or
gnome-terminal or somesuch program?  You can configure these programs
(well, xterm at least) to display bold text not just bold, but also
in some color.

For example, I'm guessing that the following command also shows a
bold blue word:

    echo `tput smso` isitblue `tput rmso`

Hm.  smso and rmso appear to be the wrong names -- they produce
inverted video in my konsole.  Anyone out there know how to produce
bold text?

So Emacs is just telling the terminal to print bold, and it's not
Emacs' fault that the Redhat terminal does something special with it...
