Controlling bold and italic within a text box control

P: n/a
A report requires a line containing author and title. The author is
required in bold and the title in bold italic font. Only one space is
required between the author and title, which are variable length when
clipped.

If two text boxes are used then the correct font setting can be
assigned to each control but the spacing seems to be fixed. The "Can
grow" "Can shrink" attributes only seem to work vertically not
horizontally.

If one text box is used with the two fields concatenated together,
then no method has been found to assign the different font
characteristics within a text box.

Any help much appreciated.
