This is a quick one:

Is it possible to implement a multiline text box that supports text formatting (rtf or html) in a custom form?

TIA, Duncan

Not directly, you would need to handle a word document object to be able to do that
but it takes a lot of coding to do that.
Because basically you're launching a mini-instance of word and storing the results as a
word document.
the number of properties of formated text is very big and of course they will not  be supported by a text box.

So the short answer is no. :)
