Rich text question type

Applies to Infiniti v8.0 or later
The rich text box is an inline text editor that allows users to apply basic formatting including bold, italic, symbols and subscript, through to complex tables, numbered lists and hyperlink.  It is used for situations where larger sections of content are being captured. The rich text box includes a spell checker.


Also users are able to select formatting based on a collection of predefined Word styles. The available styles include any non-standard word styles contained within the base document.
