Dynamically changing a paragraph to make it Bold

P: 35
Hello everyone. I want to change the style of a HTML element. I can change the paragraph alignment to left right, justify etc. But I can seem to find the code for any other style change, for example to make a paragraph bold.

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <p id="changealignment" class="javaw5" document.getElementByID("changealignment");>This is another paragraph.
  2. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. Integer sed justo. Mauris ullamcorper risus nec elit. Mauris varius lacus in mauris. Sed lacinia aliquet felis. Nam lacinia tortor at orci. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. Integer sed justo. Mauris ullamcorper risus nec elit. Mauris varius lacus in mauris. Sed lacinia aliquet felis. Nam lacinia tortor at orci.</p>
  4. <button type = "button" onclick="document.getElementById('changealignment').style.textAlign='left'">
  5. Submit - Left</button>
  6. <button type = "button" onclick="document.getElementById('changealignment').style.textAlign='right'">
  7. Submit - Right</button>
  8. <button type = "button" onclick="document.getElementById('changealignment').style.textAlign='center'">
  9. Submit - Center</button>
  10. <button type = "button" onclick="document.getElementById('changealignment').style.textAlign='justify'">
  11. Submit - Justify</button>
  12. <button type = "button" onclick="document.getElementById('changealignment').style.bold">
  13. Embolden</button>
  14. <hr width = "100%">
