Is it possible to replace words with imagesource based upon user input?

Hi again,

First you could have more than an occurrence of a word in the same  
sentence.
In addition you should handle plurals :-)
Of course if you want to add the sentence to the field, you will add  
a html cr (<p></p>) after the current contents:

on mouseUp
   constant kWords = "School, Schools,Pupil, Pupils,Pencil,Pencils"  
-- etc.
   constant kImages = "1001,1001,1002,1002,1003,1003" --  
corresponding IDs in the same order
   local tSentence
   ------
   ask "Write a sentence:" with "New sentence"
   if it = empty or it = "New sentence" then exit mouseUp
   put it into tSentence
   -----
   repeat with i = 1 to the number of items of kWords
     repeat until item i of kWords is not in tSentence
       replace item i of kWords with "<img src=" \
           & quote & item i of kImages & quote & ">" in tSentence
     end repeat
   end repeat
   set the htmlText of fld "Text" to the htmlText of fld "Text" & "  
<p></p><p>" & tSentence & "</p>"
end mouseUp

I think you are done :-)
