interesting. sometimes I could kill Don Knuth. The reason is that
normal' bold in TeX is narrow, what most people use is "extended
bold". The line

\def\Weight@bold{b}

would, if changed to \def\Weight@bold{bx}, do what you need. can you
check that works, before we take it further?

oh *rats*, I hate this TeX business. add \usepackage{ae}' in
jadetex.cfg, and rebuild the format files

I can see an update to jadetex is going to be necessary. perhaps
people could remind of patches they have done which I need to add in.
