[Scribus] No rich text?!!!

Regarding Bug# 0000002
" Ability to have multiple character formats/styles in one
paragraph, ie character based styles"
This is a glaring omission -- a desktop publishing program
that can't do rich text is like a vector graphics program
that can't draw a circle.
I spent a long time thinking I just didn't understand how to
use the interface to do this, since I couldn't believe a
desktop publishing program with a version above 1.0 would
be lacking this feature.
Yet I see no mention of it in the documentation, nor in the
mailing list archives. It doesn't seem to have been
considered all that important. So I thought I should speak
up to advocate giving this a high priority! (this didn't
seem appropriate for the "bug notes", since this is simply
supporting the importance of the bug).
Also to ask if anyone has any suggested work-arounds while
the problem persists? Otherwise, my newsletter is going to
look rather unprofessional. :-(
Best of luck, and I hope this is useful feedback,
