Scriptable rich text in a native mobile text field?   I second that!

    I probably should have specified: I was hoping there might be at least 
    something in the works to bring the scripted mobile-native editable 
    field up to par with other apps that allow styles to be applied to text 
    the user writes.

    I would expect to build the UI to set style attributes as we do on the 
    desktop, if it were possible.
