This is not possible in Simple XML. Since the result is an html page however, you can do whatever you want with it. For example, you could split your title into two DOM elements and style those accordingly. Given the following Simple XML:

  <panel id="panelId">
    <title>Panel Title, many big words</title>

The following jquery places the word "big" in a new span with an additional class:

var textElements = $('#panelId h2.panel-title').text().split(/(big)/);
$('#panelId h2.panel-title').html(textElements[0] + "<div class='special-panel-title'>" + textElements[1] + "</div>" + textElements[2]);

You can then add a css file to your dashboard which styles this class:

.special-panel-title {
    font-size: large;
    font-weight: bold;

or whatever you feel like.
