Because, unlike HC's engine-based message palette, everything in the Rev
IDE is a stack, including the message box. When you change stacks, you
are changing the focus, and any text selection somewhere else is removed.
If your field can be changed to a list field, then setting the
hilitedline of the list field is permanent, since that does not involve
a temporary selection.
