if you show a FM - Field in a form, it is possible to make some 
formatting, bold color etc, but if you want to use 
menuaction(MenuPropertiesZoomBestFit) in init, and if your user variant 
the form size, you need Runtime9, Version 10 and later loose the Cursor.

FM-fields uses some formating Properties of RTF (µS-old try to establish 
it's own format-Speech)

FM-Fields in tables are a bit tricky with rec-copy and so on, but better 
than emmbedded OLE, which do not function under Wine6 and Linux.
