I observe that everything becomes bold.  Not bad, but in fact that is
not very good, because my bold face is a bit less rich than the meager
one (e.g. it lacks quantifiers, logical connectors etc).

But this gives me an idea: by inverting the convention and defining


I obtain the bold face for the main text, and the meager face for the
emphasized (and my math happens to be emphasized).  That gives a
better way to distinguish among emphasis (by the heaviness, and that
in a non-unusual way, as italics often are lighter than the plain
face), and the anchors (which are distinguished with the color).

I do not see anything special.  OK, your idea really was a source of
innocent merriment, but probably in a different way than you

Probably you mean -nounderline
