Add Comments In RTF

hi,
    I am working with a RichTextbox control that doesnot support stylesheets.I
wanted to distinguish the styles by adding comments describing the style before the text with that particular style appears.Is there any control word which specifies comments in RTF. Thanks n advance

RTF comments (annotations) have two parts; the author ID (introduced by the control word \atnid) and the annotation text (introduced by the control word \annotation); there is no group enclosing both parts. No Microsoft product supports comments (annotations) within headers, footers, or footnotes. Placing an annotation within headers, footers, or footnotes will often result in a corrupted document. Each part of the annotation is an RTF destination. Comments (annotations) are anchored to the character that immediately precedes the annotation.

If an annotation is associated with an annotation bookmark, the following two destination control words precede and follow the bookmark. The alphanumeric string N, such as a long integer, represents the bookmark name. <atrfstart> '{\*' \atrfstart N '}'
<atrfend> '{\*' \atrfend N '}'



Comments (annotations) have the following syntax: <annot> <annotid> <atnauthor> <atntime>? \chatn <atnicn>? <annotdef>
<annotid> '{\*' \atnid #PCDATA '}'
<atnauthor> '{\*' \atnauthor #PCDATA '}'
<annotdef> '{\*' \annotation <atnref> <para>+ '}'
<atnref> '{\*' \atnref N '}'
<atntime> '{\*' \atntime <time> '}'
<atnicn> '{\*' \atnicn <pict> '}'


An example of annotation text follows:


An example of a paradigm might be Newtonian physics or
Darwinian biology.{\v\fs16 {\atnid bz}\chatn{\*\annotation
\pard\plain \s224 \fs20 {\field{\fldinst page \\#'"Page:
'#'\line'"}{\fldrslt}}{\fs16 \chatn }
How about some examples that deal with social science?
That's what this paper is about.}}

Comments (annotations) may have optional time stamps (contained in the \atntime destination) or icons (contained in the \atnicn destination).
