Styling Variable Text

I'm producing a file with closed captions based on the wonderful example provided by Steve Flowers (http://community.articulate.com/forums/t/14677.aspx), which uses variables for the captioned text.  It's wonderful, except I've hit one small snag.  In my project, text styling -- like bold and italics -- are important conventions.  Is there any way to selectively bold words within a text variable?    I tried using HTML markup (<b> and <strong&gt, but Storyline displayed the code instead of rendering it.

Hi Sharon, welcome to the community!

It is a pretty cool example...  

I just took a look at Steve's story file and on slide 1.2, rectangle 3 he is formatting text within the variable using the same sort of html markers you mention above.

The formatting seems to work in the example he published, but when I preview and/or publish I'm seeing the same thing you describe, the formatting doesn't seem to work.  I would suggest posting in the original thread and see if you can get Steve's thoughts on it
