[texhax] boldfacing words from a list

My hope was to be able to bold them somewhat automatically, only having
to type any markup commands once.

Thus, typing \vocabulary{profits} every time that word appears in the
source is no easier than typing \textbf{profits} every time it appears.
 In fact, the former is more keystrokes.

Typing it herself remains one of my pet peeves with our school district:
 students are required to turn in typed assignments in as early as
elementary school, but they don't get typing class until high school.  I
still don't have a satisfactory explanation from the administrators.
