[AccessD] Highlighting a record in a form

Just BOLD would be fine. Lines 5 and 8 are actually totals, although the 
form will just see them as additional data lines. In Excel, the user made 
them bold to stand out as totals.

I'd prefer to do this in datasheet view, but I can use continuous form 
the fields shown horizontally.

Is there a way to simply tell Access to highlight the 5th record? Not 
fifth record (although that would be okay, since there are only 8); just 
fifth. The data comes from a table I create via a make table query, so I 
control exactly what goes where. I need records 5 & 8 highlighted n the
form. That's all. Seems easy, but I can't seem to get it. Feel free to 
me feel even more stupid by suggesting an easy solution.

=====Define "highlight" for us. Does it matter?
