Hi, Roger.  Here's a quickie - create a stack with two fields ('in' and 
'out')  put your data into field 'in' and the following into the button 

on mouseUp
    set itemDel to tab
    put fld "in" into tData
    put the num of lines in tData into tLines
    repeat with i = 1 to tLines
       put item 1 of line i of tData into tNumber
       replace tNumber with "<font color=red>" & tNumber & "</font>" in 
item 4 of line i of tData
       put "<br>" after line i of tData
    end repeat
    set the htmlText of fld "out" to tData
end mouseUp
