This section of the page is a standard text widget. You will need to enter the following in the main text field.

<p><strong>Mercado</strong>, the <strong>September</strong> 2011 release, is the epitome of elegant <strong>eCommerce</strong> integration, with its contemporary, <strong>refined</strong> visuals, style and structure. </p>
