Description Rob DeRosa 2017-08-19 18:54:57 UTC
Labels with spans don't seem to render properly - attributes are not honored on Android (iOS is correct).

Sample code:

                            <Span Text="This text should be large.&#x0a;&#x0a;"
                                FontSize="Large" />
                            <Span Text="This text should be small"
                                FontSize="Small" />

All text is rendered small.

This is most likely a bug in Forms itself
