I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

here is the information that you are looking for....

from MM:

Usage
new TextFormat([font, [size, [color, [bold, [italic, [underline, [url, [target, [align, [leftMargin, [rightMargin, [indent, [leading]]]]]]]]]]]]])

Parameters
font The name of a font for text as a string.

size An integer that indicates the point size.

color The color of text using this text format. A number containing three 8-bit RGB components; for example, 0xFF0000 is red, 0x00FF00 is green.

bold A Boolean value that indicates whether the text is boldface.

italic A Boolean value that indicates whether the text is italicized.

underline A Boolean value that indicates whether the text is underlined.

url The URL to which the text in this text format hyperlinks. If url is an empty string, the text does not have a hyperlink.

target The target window where the hyperlink is displayed. If the target window is an empty string, the text is displayed in the default target window _self. If the url parameter is set to an empty string or to the value null, you can get or set this property, but the property will have no effect.

align The alignment of the paragraph, represented as a string. If "left", the paragraph is left-aligned. If "center", the paragraph is centered. If "right", the paragraph is right-aligned.

leftMargin Indicates the left margin of the paragraph, in points.

rightMargin Indicates the right margin of the paragraph, in points.

indent An integer that indicates the indentation from the left margin to the first character in the paragraph.

leading A number that indicates the amount of leading vertical space between lines.

Returns
Nothing.

Description
Constructor; creates a TextFormat object with the specified properties. You can then change the properties of the TextFormat object to change the formatting of text fields.

Any parameter may be set to null to indicate that it is not defined. All of the parameters are optional; any omitted parameters are treated as null.

just follow the line above...  the ones that are not being used are:

[leftMargin, [rightMargin, [indent, [leading]]]]


so in order of appearance:

font name = textFont
font size = 13
text color = 0x000000
bold = false
italic = false
underline = false
url = ""   //which means no url
target = ""  //which means no target
text alignment = center

let me know if you have any more questions...
