    font-size: 109%;
    text-indent:0em;
    text-align:center;
    margin-bottom: 1em;
    margin-left: 3em;
    margin-right: 3em;
    margin-top: 0em
    }
and code in the main text:
Code:
<p class="calibre24">this is subheading</p>

Just made another experiment - when I add font-weight:bold, then the text is much bolder, whatever the size.
So it's not real bold, but just looks bolder than main text both in Sigil and in Calibre viewer.

It's totally mystifying. Does it mean I can't get big thin characters? Seems somehow wrong.
Have you tried putting font-weight:normal; into your style definition?
A lot of HTML rendering engines will automatically embolden headings and large fonts unless you specifically tell them not to.
