How to enable bold syntax on light theme?

I noticed that the dark and light syntaxes have differences. They use different terminal colors and sometimes not terminal colors at all. What I don’t understand why on a light theme there’s no bold font? Could I enable it somehow?

Upd. Well I found out that default light color scheme (that uses terminal colors) doesn’t have bold font because in some terminals the bold font is always white. So I need to switch to another colorscheme of (n)vim.

If you use Neovim mostly in a terminal, and if you want to stick to the basic 8/16 terminal colors, you might enjoy the colorschemes Dim and Disco. They are specifically designed to work with basic terminal colors.
