Is there any special tags and/or codes to apply font effects (e.g. bold) to some words in a texbox text in VB6?

The question is the following:
I have a proprietary application with a special command that can identify some words in a textbox.text in a VB6 application, and more, it is possible to define initial, and end tags, to apply effects to those words (not whole text), like highlighting, bold, italic, etc.

The command is like this: textbox.text = date_base_name.fieldbyname("field_name").HightLightString(index as long, start_tag as string, end_tag as string)

The index value is not applyiable in this case, and the start tag and end tag should be som special code, or codes, to define font effects, like bold.

Is there any tags or codes that can be recognized by VB6 textbox that could be used?
