This is considered a Power User feature in Carousel Cloud. Note that improper use of formatting could cause your bulletin or template to break, so proceed with caution. We do not publicly advertise advanced formatting as a feature, so support using markup languages is not guaranteed.
Carousel Cloud allows for the use of some inline CSS text styling. Below is a sample of the most common use cases, but as noted, these could change or cease to function correctly as HTML and CSS transform over time.
For more details on Inline CSS, and other examples, we suggest exploring the W3Schools CSS Catalog.

HTML 4.0 (Deprecated with HTML5 and Inline CSS)
HTML stands for Hypertext Markup Language. Carousel supports a limited amount of HTML formatting in templates. Using HTML in your templates, you can expand what you can do with your bulletins.
Here are some examples of formatting code you can use to spruce up your bulletins:
Formatting HTML Usage
This text is bold!
<b>This text is bold!</b>
This text is Italic
<i>This text is Italic</i>
This text is looking small
<small>This text is looking small</small>
Good for nesting smaller text within normal-sized text.
This is subscripted text
This is <sub>subscripted</sub> text.
And this is superscripted.
And this is <sup>superscripted</sup>
Add a splash of color.
Add a <font style="color:red">splash</font> of color.
You can define colors with RGB, HEX, etc. More on this here.
You can even nest / indent lists within lists to add "sub" lists. More about lists here.
<ol> <li>Coffee</li> <li>Tea</li> <li>Milk</li></ol>

and text beneath
You can use heading tags <h1> through <h6>. More about headings here.
