SetMarkupEnabled and Label Font

So I'm working on a plugin to make custom chat windows. There are two labels with SetMarkupEnabled(true).

--Not altering incoming message, only adding color
AppendText("<rgb=" .. channelChatColor .. ">" .. msg .. "</rgb>")

--Removing custom tags (character names, item links, etc)
msg = msg:gsub("%b<>", "");
AppendText("<rgb=" .. channelChatColor .. ">" .. msg .. "</rgb>")
But there seems to be no way to specify the font when LOTRO generates the clickable elements from the custom tags.

Has anyone else encountered this?
Am I just missing something?

Yep, I recall encountering this bug, although it's been several years since I played with it. The only way around it would be to create your own replacement for the TextBox control, which is probably a much bigger project than you intended to undertake.

That's what I was afraid of. Oh well, it's not that big of a deal.

Apparently, you also cannot see who sent a tell via Turbine.Chat Received message.

You get the ChatType of 6 and the message, but nothing to indicate who the tell came from, lol.

Posting this here just for the record, in case SSG ever looks at this stuff
