I am having a problem finding a command to select a word and put it 
into a container. In Hypercard I use to use a function with these 

click at the clickloc
click at the clickloc
put the selection into container

But this does not seem to work with revolution.
I'd like to click on a word, show a rectangle areound it (like in 
Hypercard) or color it, and put it into a variables container.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
