Bold string in a formula field

How do I go about bolding part of a formula field that is a string?  
My formula is as follows and I want to bold the string: *DTC*

if {receiver.r_ussname} startswith "DTC" then
    {receiver.r_letter}& " *DTC*"
Else
    {receiver.r_letter}


Thanks!

I can think of 2 ways to do this.

1.  Add a text box to the report where you want to display
     Drag the {receiver.r_letter} field into the box
     Change your formula to
if {receiver.r_ussname} startswith "DTC" then
     " *DTC*"
 Else
    ""

Open in new window

   Drag the new formula into the text box
    Right click the text box
    Click EDIT
    Select the formula field
    Set it BOLD through the ribbon

2.  Use your formula but add HTML or RTF encoding to it
if {receiver.r_ussname} startswith "DTC" then
     {receiver.r_letter}& " <b>*DTC*>/b>"
 Else
     {receiver.r_letter}

Open in new window

Put it on the report
Right click it
Click FORMAT FIELD
Click the COMMON TAB
Set the interpretation to HTML
