Dear monks

I have been using TableMatrix for years now, and besides the problems of installing it on modern Strawberry Perl (starting 5.26), I've been always happy with its versatility. I am now improving parts of my code base and I need to format a substring displayed in a cell. Formatting the entire cell is not a problem using the tag functions. Is there any build-in function to tag only a part of the cell? As I could not find on, I resorted to add to any cell a ROText Widget (as text in this widget can be formatted very flexibly). It works fine for small tables, but my doubt is: if the table grows in size and is dynamically generated, i.e. its rows are continuously created and destroyed, will this have effects on performances or even on stability? Or am I worrying too much?
