I am working on an application that consumes a user-generated
HTML file and displays it on part of a Flex screen. The main
problem is HTML can look something like this (for example):
Hello <span class="greeting">Mr. Smith</span>,
how are you doing <span class="title>today</span>.
Unfortunately, the Flex Text control only accepts a single
style that is applied to all text within the control and the
htmlText property only allows for very basic HTML markup and does
not include support for applying styles to a part of the text.
I've thought about creating a series of Text controls (each
with its own style as needed) and putting them together in an HBox.
However, this messes up word wrapping if the text exceeds the width
of its container.
