You can format text within a field independently of the text properties
applied to the field itself.  For example, if you set the textColor of one
character of text in a field to red, changing the textColor of the field
itself will not change the color of the red character.  Formatting text
within a field changes the htmlText of the field, which can override text
formatting applied to the field object itself.
