[ic] Changing "required field" formatting from bold to using a trailing asterisk.

I found the post referenced below at
html but my Interpolate.pm (Interchange v5.2) looks A LOT different than
the 2003-04-25 version.   Can someone provide guidance in updating
Interpolate.pm and after.cfg to accomplish the same thing in Fedora Core
1/Interchange 5.2?  Any ideas are welcome.
Thanks in advance
This one gave me a bit of a run-around, but I did finally figure it
out.  If you like the default "bold" fields, then you should be set to
go using the error tag with the "std_label" attribute.

I think it makes the form harder to read with some labels bolded and
others not, so I changed mine.  In etc/after.cfg, I added this line:

Variable MV_ERROR_STD_LABEL <label for="{NAME}" class="error">{LABEL}
<i>(%s)</i></label>[else]<label for="{NAME}">{LABEL}{REQUIRED

Note the tabs between "Variable" and "MV_ERROR_STD_LABEL" and the
value.  Also, I modified Interpolate.pm a little to add the "{NAME}"
replacement.  The diff for this is:
