1.) Create some formatted text in a text editor.
2.) Copy that formatted text to the clipboard.
3.) Paste it into a text field ( field "yourField" ) in Rev.
4.) In the message window enter this:
put the HTMLText of field "yourField" into field "yourField"
This way you can see the different kinds of HTML tags. Also see the
docs on HTMLText.
