Subject Re: Adding font properties to a TextArea

It really depends on your use case. In the sample application I referred to in that thread,
I used a bold label with a slightly larger font as a heading, along with a combination of
labels (all of which use the same font) to render an address. The approach I suggested works
well for this case, which is conceptually similar to using an <h1> tag followed by a
<p> tag in HTML.

If you need to mix text styles within a paragraph (like a <span>), this approach probably
won't work as well. That's where something like Flying Saucer might be more useful.
