Is it possible to undo the effect
of boldsymbol, and if so how?
In the Std Latex Article, switch to
math mode and type (say) "ab". Now
highlight the letters, and tag them
as boldsymbol. Preview, and verify that
they are bold. (This may be easier to
see if you type the stuff twice, and
bold only one set).

Suppose you change your mind, and no longer
want bold. Selecting the bold stuff and
tagging it "normal" seems to have no
effect. Neither does tagging it "bold"
or "boldsymbol" on the theory that these
are toggles. Is it possible to un-bold
math text?
