HTML and custom field description

I have created a custom field (user picker). I would like the field description to be "bold" when displayed on screens. I put the description between <b>text</b> but that is how it is displayed on the screen. It does appear bold under the field on the Administration page. This is on Jira Software v 7.2.

Atlassian are removing the html from displays because it's a vector for security attacks.  They've not got around to the admin screens yet, as admins generally have to be trusted no matter what.

Thanks for quick reply. So there is no way to make the field description visually standout on my screens?

Not really, no.

We're using panel to have a more visual description : 

{panel:title=Problem statement|titleBGColor=#444852|bgColor=#f5f5f5|titleColor=#FFFFFF|borderStyle=dashed|borderColor=#444852}
Your text goes here
{panel}
