As far as I know, a unicode stream doesn't contain any formatting data
at all. That means that formatting unicode directly text is impossible.
I don't think that anything is actually lost when converting unicode
text from and to htmlText, but there may be a few bugs. There are a
few bugs in conversion to RTF text, with regard to the size of the
text and colours (although the colours bug may have been fixed
already). I can imagine that there are similar bugs in the conversion
to and from htmlText.
