HTML formatting problem

Greetings

I've been trying to use html to format some plain text, specifically,
hiliting a keyword within sentences. The text is read into a variable and
then html formating code is added using repeat loops and then put into a
fld.

The problem is that only the first 9 lines are formated. The codes are
actually present in the variable before setting the htmltext of the fld but
don't affect any lines after line 9. This is with 2.0 beta 2 as well as
1.1.1 both on OS 9.

Here's the code (watch for wrapped line):

  put "<font size="&tsize&"
color="&tcolor&"><"&tstyle&">"&keyword&"</"&tstyle&"></font><font
face="&item 2 of fontprefs&" size="&item 3 of fontprefs&" color="&item 5 of
fontprefs&"><"&item 4 of fontprefs&">" into htext

 repeat for each line l in thetext

    put replacetext(l,keyword,htext) into l

    put "<p><font face="&fname&" size="&fsize&"
color="&fcolor&"><"&fstyle&">"&l&"</"&fstyle&"></font></p>" & return after
htmltexts

  end repeat

   set the htmltext of fld "num1" of stack thename to conctext
 

Does anyone else have this problem? or a solution?
Thanks
Ron
