Text effects: outline, shadow...in a RichTextBox?

Hi everyone,
I'm wondering if it's possible to add outlining or shadow to text in a
RichTextBox? On www.bobpowell.net he has some tutorials on how to do
so using GDI+, which I realize isn't available for RTBs. Is there a
way to reproduce the RTB control using GDI+ instead of GDI?
Or are there any other ways to go about this?

Thanks for reading/suggestions!

In fact, it doesn't need to be a RichTextBox at all. What the control
needs to do is display rtf files (usually, but they could be plain text
too). I chose RTB because it had that built in, but all the form needs
to do is read, not write, and the text won't be editable.

Thanks,
Nick Spacek
