label with html content - supported tags?

In one of the beta release, Label could now handle some html content within its text data:

Label.setText("<html><p>asdf</p></html>")

 

But i haven't been able to find which html tags are supported...anyone saw a document regarding the supported tags or knows what are the supported tags?

 

<ul> and <h1> <h...> tags do not seem to work.

Re: label with html content - supported tags?

They haven't documented any of this publicly yet, but there are some other things that work.

These include <br/>, <div> and <span>, <em> and <strong> (same as <i> and <b>), and you can set some basic color/font CSS styles with style="" on a given element.

I'm pretty sure we'll see this fully documented in the next beta coming out next week.
