Hiding Labels in Notification messages when fields have no data

    I have a series of text fields with labels "1. ", "2. ", etc. and the user does not have to enter data into all of them. When the Notification message is sent to them (styled in HTML) any empty fields don't show but I'm a bit unclear on the use of the merge tag {[Field Name]:[field_id]}.

    The field's names/labels are "1. " etc. but I'm not able to get the merge code to show the label with the entered data or "not show" it if there was no entered data. I seem to only be able to put the labels in as fixed values in the HTML which then cannot be hidden if there is no data.

    Note that as I am writing this I see a 2010 post asking a similar question which looks as though the answer was that you cannot get the label to show/not show with the field data and based upon existence of data. Perhaps this has changed since then? Or, any suggested work around?

    Thanks
    John
