The linkText is an amazing thing, but I still don't really get it.
Where is the info that you put in here stored? Is it stored as a hidden
custom property of the field? What is amazing is that you can rearrange
everying, and the links don't get messed up. You can sort a field, you
can fully edit the original linked chunk, even delete it entirely and
retype something new there, and it will keep the same linkText. You can
cut and paste the linked chunk into a new location in the field, and it
will keep the original linkText. It also offers different colors for
unvisited vs visited links. And you can get a list of all the link
texts of a field with a simple handler e.g.
repeat with i = 1 to the number of words in myfield
if the textstyle of word i of field myField is "link" then
if the textstyle of word i - 1 of field myField is not "link" then
put the linkText of word i of field myField after theList
LinkText is a beautiful thing. But how does it work?
