I'd like to do something like:

IF(test_some_condition, BOLD(COLOR("Yes"), "#FF2222"), "No")

In other words, I'd like to display some text but format it differently based on some condition. Possible? Doesn't seem like it.

In the formatting inspect ("Cells" pane) there is a section called "Conditional Format" in which you can change the text or background color based on the value in the cell.
