I have to disagree on that. Off the top of my head, I can't think of any
site that does it like that. But that's subjective, of course. My real
point is that making bold text indicate hyperlinks is not a good idea.

   Well the first four sites I went to after reading your comment
   don't have the links underlined:


   And I've gone to a few other sites since I made note of those, and
   NONE have the links underlined (execpt on :hover, if then).

I just found more information about this, here:


   ...where it says:


      Check that each link in the page that is identifiable by color
      (hue) is visually identifiable via some other means (e.g.,
      underlined, bolded, italicized, sufficient difference in
      lightness, etc).
