xfakebold – Fake a regular font for bold characters
This package uses PDF’s text rendering to modify the linewidth of an outline font to get bold characters. It works only for vectorfonts where the glyphs are defined by their outline.
The package works both in text and in math mode, for pdfLaTeX as well as for LuaLaTeX.
