I am currently supporting a learning provider who is considering making the move to Moodle from their current VLE. As part of the planning they have asked if it would be possible for them to be given access to some other Moodle installs to get a feel for how Moodle can be themed/skinned/configured.
If any of you good folks would be able to facilitate this, please contact me and I will forward your contact details onto the provider to organise it with you.

I hope not! The <font> tag is long 'deprecated' and will likely not be recognised by future browsers. I've just now checked in Moodle 2.1 and, pleasingly, the editor uses <span> tags with embedded styles for font styles.
As mentioned already, you don't need HTML knowledge to edit label text, though it can occasionally help. I regularly put in dividing lines in labels and section titles, which requires something along the lines of:
<hr color="#00aa00" />
which produces a green line. AFAIK there's no option in the editor to do this.
