I'm using a TextSymbol to label points I'm placing on my map.  Problem is, sometimes it can be hard to read because of all the things going on with the map.  Is it possible to put the TextSymbol inside a box, give it a background color, or highlight the text in some way to help it stand out from the background?  There's no built-in way to change anything but the alignment and the underline/overline, but I was hoping someone might know a trick for this.
