I noticed that the the text tool cannot create multi-styled text... and apparently several bugs and/or enhancement requests have been filed asking for this feature.

Is there an existing gimp feature I've missed that makes this easier to cope with? Or is there a recommended workaround? Is there, for instance, an easy way to put styled text into a text file and then convert it into an x by y image or layer with a script? And a way to change the text and re-render without too much manual labor?

The ideas I've had:

- Make an html document and take a screenshot - yuck, and labor intensive if many frequent text changes are needed.

- Code something myself - not horribly painful, but a simpler solution might be nice! :-)

Any better suggestions?

I'm using The Gimp 2.2.11 that came with Ubuntu 6.06.
