If we make a text selection and store it as a selectedChunk string

e.g

gCurrentSelection


which them would have say... a value of

char 669 to 1094 of field 6

How to I re-select that text?

global gCurrentSelection
on mouseUp
    set the backgroundcolor of gCurrentSelection to yellow
end mouseUp

works'

but

global gCurrentSelection
on mouseUp
   selectgCurrentSelection
end mouseUp

does not... an i can't find a way to re-set the selection ....
