[Gtk-sharp-list] textbuffer text as string with markup.

Hi guys,

I know it's silly to reply to my own text, but now that I've done some more
research, I think I should clarify the problem. Sorry if seeing this in your
inbox again is annoying. 

I have a treeview and a textview with some simple markup being done like so: 

		protected virtual void OnBoldActionActivated (object sender,
System.EventArgs e)
			TextIter startIter;
			TextIter stopIter;
			TextBuffer buffer = textNote.Buffer;
			if (buffer.GetSelectionBounds(out startIter, out stopIter)) {
				buffer.ApplyTag("bold", startIter, stopIter);				

As some point, I create a data object like so:

TestObject testObj = new TestObj(textNote.Buffer.Text);

And the model for my treeview is a List<TestObject>.

The render method is written like this: 

			TestObject testObj = (TestObject) model.GetValue(iter, 0);
			(cell as Gtk.CellRendererText).Markup = testObj.Text;
however - somewhere in there my markup is getting lost.  

Any feedback would be very much appreciated! I know this has to be a pretty
basic question - so even a few pointers in the right direction would be very
well awesome!
