You don't need to use both the formula button and the dropdown.  If you always want the text to have a certain interpretation then use the dropdown.  If there are instances when you want different interpretations based on the record then you would use the formula.

Crystal doesn't interpret all HTML commands so you may be using a command it doesn't interpret.
