$dayoftheweek isn’t feasible for a possible campaign start on November 28, 2018
That is correct.
make parts of the copy bold and add an underline
Parts of the text can be bold, underlined, or different colors. However, the underline must be the same color as the text.

Agreed, and this can potentially be done by introducing special keywords in the announcement text like $dayofweek, but this would necessitate an update to the app client logic, and bumping the version of the announcements (i.e. AndroidV3) since existing app versions won't know how to handle the keywords.
As a side note, does anyone know if this kind of thing is done in CentralNotice? And if so, how?
@Charlotte Nope, the HTML is limited to things like bold or italic text, and not much else. The day of the week is not related to HTML presentation anyway -- the only way to do this would be to have different announcements scheduled for each day, with the correct day stated in the announcement verbiage.

Yes, in that case the prepopulated text will still be "My reading list", and the text box will show a warning that this name already exists.
@cmadeo Oh sorry, I see what you mean.
So actually, the text "My reading list" is not a hint, but a pre-populated name for the new reading list. If you choose to click OK, it will actually use that title for the new list. Otherwise you can start typing another title, which will automatically wipe out the pre-highlighted default text.
Do we want to get rid of this behavior?
On the Android side, we have the following technical constraints at the moment:
- Similar to what Josh mentioned, we currently don't have a way of displaying banners inline with articles. We currently can only show cards in the Explore feed.
- The card that appears in the Explore feed must adhere to the layout seen below (the text can be arbitrary, with limited HTML, and an optional image across the top of the card (not seen in this screenshot)). If we need to make changes to the layout, we'll need to act quickly to release an update to the app so that a sufficient proportion of users receive it before fundraising begins.
@cmadeo I'm not totally sure what you mean: are you referring to the blue hint text that floats above the reading list title? If so, this is a standard part of Android input fields.
