Best way to create actionable text?



We are trying to build a form with clear, guided directions. 


Is there a way to uniquely markup text (i.e. color, underlining, etc) so that users can easily identify directions? Or is there another tool besides forms that we could use to accomplish this?

The HTML text control gives the ability to do all of this but you would need to know HTML to make the markups.


Some Examples:

words placed between <b> your_word here </b> will be bold

words placed between <i> your_word here </i> will be italic

words placed between <i> your_word here </u> will be underlined
words placed between <font color=blue> your_word_here </font> will be blue

words placed between <font size=16> your_word_here </font> will be size 16
