Rich Text editor support for SPAN creation

There is no facility for any custom styling of words in the Rich Text area. We have to repurpose Bold, Italics, or now the Superscript/Subscript stylings in order to allow clients to do red alert text styling, yellow highlighted styling, etc.

I'd like to see the addition of 3 SPAN types in a Rich Text Area, which you can default to yellow-highlight, blue-highlight, violet-highlight. We'd be able to restyle these, of course, to whatever is needed for that client, e.g. Red text for a COVID policy alert message.

    For people needing this now, I've devised a styling hack that repurposes the Superscript and Subscript styles to create two custom styles. However, this approach may confuse clients who have to remember to use the Superscript and Subscript styles to access them. It may also impact accessibility since Webflow generates <sup> and <sub> elements here.
