What You See Is What You Get label formatting and display in Label Expression Builder with user friendly formatting options (like MS Word, restrain use of text formatting tags). Adjust formatting directly on desired output sample (choose specific records for preview). Interactive preview in Dataframe window (without permanent redraw of underlying layers). Syntax assistant.

This seems long overdue - VBscript and HTML seem very clunky to many non-programmers (i.e. most ArcGIS users).  As a first step why not have the dialog box show just the field names with carriage returns for new lines and any spacing.  Then when part of that gets selected and a Bold button is hit show it in Bold, etc
