I've been looking everywhere and I find different answers. What are people's opinions on to bold field labels or to keep them regular text? Would you bold input fields and keep display fields as regular, or be consistent one way or another?
I'm finding mixed reviews with the research based stuff leaning towards to not bold.
Any thoughts and comments would be appreciated!

My opinion based purely on personal preference is that words should only be bolded in special circumstances. For example, maybe a field could be bolded if you submitted a form and the data for a field was invalid - then the field heading could be bold.
Bolding all objects of a certain type isn't really "bolding" them because they all have equal weight then. All you've really done is changed the font and removed the option of bolding.
