I believe that wxTextCtrl uses RichEdit under win32 when the wxTE_RICH style
flag is used in wxPython or wxTE_RICH | wxTE_MULTILINE. Of course, all of
RichEdit is "hidden" behind the wxTextCtrl API. demo.py included with
wxPython 2.3.1 or higher (the latest is 2.3.2) includes a demo of using
wxTE_RICH to set styled text in the control.
