  Panel:InsertClickableTextStart( string signalValue )


Starts the insertion of clickable text for a RichText element. Any text appended with Panel:AppendText between this call and Panel:InsertClickableTextEnd will become clickable text.

The clickable text is a separate Derma panel which will not inherit the current font from the RichText.
