<foil location="random" value="Green" name="Foil1">
  <startouttext />
     This is foil One. It is currently set to
     "Green." You should pick Green in this list : <drawoptionlist /> if
     you want to get this question correct.
  <endouttext />

No. This is not currently possible in a single <optionresponse>.
