ODS formatting of Text to get Underlining and Italics - looking for the Help Documents

In the past, I have used code like the following to produce italics, underlining, and line breaks in my text strings.  I am having trouble finding the SAS Help Documents that show these commands.  I'd like to see what else is available.

 

call symput ('TCCAnchHead','\ul\i Anchor Set Test Characteristic Curves \ul0\i0');  * gives underline and italics ;

ods escapechar='~';

if subscore='F' then sub='Functions~n '||put(totpoints,2.);  * produces a line break inside a cell in a table;

 

I can't seem to find the Help Document that shows these commands, can someone help me with where I can find them?

It looks like you are putting raw RTF codes into the text.  There is not much documentation as the references are Microsoft for the RTF definition. You can get some documentation from a download link here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=10725
