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,
