I tried the following in a button:

global gSelTxt
on mouseDown
  put the selectedChunk into gSelTxt
end mouseDown

on mouseUp
  if gSelTxt is not empty then
    set the textStyle of gSelTxt to "bold"
  end if
end mouseUp

and it still doesn't work...any other ideas?

Try capturing the selection information you need in the mouseDown event.
