I have a label that I'm trying to use the <form> <li> <p> formatting tags. I see that ISapphireLabelDef is rendered with a SapphireFormText. Is it possible to use those formatting tags with this?

I don't see anything in the code that would prohibit this, but I cannot recommend this approach. The lexicon employed by form text is unlikely to become part of Sapphire API.

Have you considered using HTML embedding instead? See "HTML Content" in the gallery sample.

I did consider Html content but the background of the control doesn't match. In my case I'm using a Sapphire Wizard dialog, not a masterdetails page. So the default background is not white so the html control looks out of place. In my case I was able to work around this no problem.

Since it is HTML, you can set whatever background color you'd like...

This is true, but I wasn't for sure how to get the current default background of the WizardDialog. I could hard code it to the default on my windows 7 system, but don't know how to do that for other windows systems, e.g., linux, mac. Does the html control value possible to use expressions?

You can indeed use expressions to compute HTML content.

Ah I see, that would be one way to dynamically set the background color.
