There are three ways to refer to the contents of fields:
the text -- returns plain text
the htmlText -- return text with style run info in HTML
the rtfText -- return text with style run info in RTF
If a field contains HTML, getting the htmlText of that field will return the
field's content reformatted with ISO-8959-1 character entities (e.g., "<h3>"
would become "<h3>").
So if your field contains HTML and you want to convert it to RF, first don't
alter with with character entities by getting its htmlText -- just get its
set the htmlText of fld "rtf" to fld "html"
get the rtfText of fld "rtf"
-- now "it" contains an RTF version of the HTML
-- originally in fld "html"
