GW 8.0.1 32-bit windows client.

If I have my default compose view as TEXT, I can click the "B" and type stuff into the subject line and it's bolded.

I can also type "normal" and then highlight words and then click the "B" and it'll change the highlighted text as bold.

BUT, if I change my default compose to be HTML, then the "B" only works on the message body and does not work on the subject line.

Is this a WAD (working as designed)?

It seems rather odd, if you ask me that you can only bold text in the subject line if you're in Text mode and not HTML view.
