Now we're getting somewhere. Do this:


4.) In the message window enter this:
     put the HTMLText of field "yourField" into field "yourField"

5.) Now edit the markup you see by adding bold, underline, box,

6.) In the message window enter this:
     set the HTMLText of field "yourField" to field "yourField"
