Different fonts displayed in-game.

Rich text formatting introduced in 0.17.0 allows the use of tags within most of the game's textboxes to change the visual formatting of text or to embed interactable images/entities. Predefined text tags are employed for this purpose.

Tags

Tags are useful for sharing blueprints, marking map locations in chat or adding icons to map markers and train stations. Ctrl+alt clicking the map or ground will automatically insert a gps tag and post it into chat.

Shift clicking most things with the console open will insert a tag for that thing into chat.

When used in chat, the tag image will be followed by a text description, except for the img tag. Used elsewhere only the image is shown.
