Hi Richard,

A quick peek at its script shows that the ANswer
dialog box has been updated, and now you'll have to
put the <p> tag on the first line in order to make it
display your text as html-formatted text.
There was a lot of discussion after RunRev 2.0 came
out, about the Answer dialog displaying things as
html-formatted text when it wasn't really htmlText.
And they fixed it for version 2.1.2.
So you should change the script to something like :
  on mouseup
     answer "<p>text1</p><p>text2</p>" \
            with "ok"
  end mouseup

Hope this helped,

Jan Schenkel.
