[oXygen-user] What is better: bold the names or bold the values?

I prefer the bolding of values because that is the thing your modifying. Bolding  of the name implies something special about that name which is not the case here.

We need your feedback on one of the oXygen 10.1 features. We implemented 
a new XML Schema editor where XML Schemas can be edited visually. The 
properties of the selected component are available in a side view 
(Attributes view). Now, some attributes are specified by the user, some 
other have default values. For marking the specified ones we though of 
two possibilities:

- bold the attribute names as you can see in



- bold the values, as you can see in


Do you have a preference for any of these?
