How Can I Make A String Variable With Styled Text?

Hello everyone,

I have a string variable

myString = "This is boldface. The rest is not."

When I execute myString, I want the first sentence to appear in bold type. Selecting the sentence and formatting it as bold when I create the string does not work. StringForm will do the trick, as in

myString = StringForm["`` The rest is not.", Style["This is boldface", Bold]]

but, of course, the Head of myString will no longer be String. Is there any other way to do this?
