I want to change the font weight for the title, body, etc fields to be bold. Using the IE tools I have identified that these title are within an h3 with class ms-standardheader. as follow:-

enter image description here

So inside my custom css I wrote the following :-

.ms-standardheader h3.ms-standardheader {
font-weight:bold !important;

But it did not change the font weight, can anyone advice what is wrong with my code ?

    Try changing your selector to .ms-formlabel h3.ms-standardheader instead.

    Your CSS was looking for an H3 with class "ms-standardheader" to was a descendant of an element with class "ms-standardheader" Daniel's works because it has an appropriate parent class.

I followed Daniel advice and used ".ms-formlabel h3.ms-standardheader" which solved my problems.
