Capslock, Let's Make It Useful

Can I make (remap?) my capslock key to be two keys? Specifically, I want to make it hit Ctrl+B. If your recommendation is Word-specific, that's fine too.

And when I say Ctrl+B, what I really mean is that I hate hitting "Ctrl+B", and I have to bold text all the time. So ideally, I'd love to be able to hit CapsLock, type in bold, then hit CapsLock again to go back to normal text...

Windows, Vista if it matters. I've seen a bunch of stuff that talks about remapping to one key, for example Shift, but not to 2 keys.

Yep. Autohotkey, specifically with the script:

CapsLock::^b
