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.

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.
