What is the simplest way to have part of a bold caption (including some inline math) non-bold?

Put the respective part of the caption in \textmd{}.




\caption{A bold caption with a \textmd{medium/regular} part}


EDIT: By default, LaTeX will use (non-bold) italics for inline math even in a bold caption. I assumed that you wanted to change an additional part of the caption to non-bold.
