    I am trying to programatically embed an email hyperlink in the text of the RichText control in the report_detail section of a report.  Here is what the code looks like:

    RichTextNotice.Text = "e-mail us at " & CompanyEmail & "." & " Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions."

    Is there anyway to accomplish this?
