How to Bold A Section of text in A TextView in Android Studio

Really, as a beginner, you will always ponder how to get minor things done when you are working with android studio. Let say you want to bold a section of Text. This is different from Bolding the entire text which you can easy do with this code bellow

You can achieve this doing the steps bellow

android:text="@string/mypost" />

<string name="mypost"> <b> Bold Me </b> don’t bold me </string>

Only the opening the closing html syntax will be bold
