If what you're asking is whether you can embed some sort of markup in  
the text itself to change the text style (e.g. as you do with HTML),  
and the answer to that question is no.

What you might want to investigate is appending text to the FXText  
window incrementally (instead of setting the content in one fell  
swoop), e.g.

	@evtrievefindings.each do |finding|
		text_widget.appendText(finding + "\n")

And then once you've got that working, switch over to using styled  
text. You would still need to keep some sort of indicator in the  
@etrievefindings array (or a parallel array), but you could at least  
know which style to apply:

	@etrievefindings.each do |finding|
		if condition1
			text_widget.appendStyledText(finding + "\n", style1)
			text_widget.appendStyledText(finding + "\n", style2)

Hope this helps,
