           Summary: A help dialog with label syntax is needed
           Product: kst
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: unspecified
        OS/Version: Solaris
            Status: NEW
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kst kde org
        ReportedBy: nicolas.brisset eurocopter com

Version:           1.2.0_devel (using KDE 3.4.0, compiled sources)
Compiler:          gcc version 3.4.3
OS:                SunOS (sun4u) release 5.8

Labels can contain Latex-like formatting commands, but:
1) not all commands are supported, and it is hard to predict what can be used
2) (more important IMHO) not everybody is a Latex guru who knows Latex syntax

I think a tooltip or some sort of help dialog ("What's this ?") describing available formatting commands would be nice to have. 
Probably not for 1.2.0 because it will introduce new strings for i18n...
