The TextStyleAdd() and TextColor() functions use numerical bitmasks as there arguments, for simple operations, + can be used to combine them.

For more complex operations, BitAnd() can be helpful, its output is only those bits set in both inputs:
BitAnd( Bold + Italic, Italic + Underline ) = Italic
