As documented here: "Labels containing text formatting tags will not be abbreviated by the ESRI Maplex Label Engine when using an abbreviation dictionary."
Simply stated, this would be a very useful capability.  It would be very helpful to be able to format a single string of text such that the primary portion of the text (say, the words Communication Towers) could be abbreviated while the secondary portion of the text (say, the numerical tower heights) could be formatted using text tages for emphasis or clarity.
