I found it:

button "Check HTML"

on mouseUp
   If  "<p>" is in field "mainText" then -- htmltext is there
      set the htmlText of field "mainText" to field "mainText"
      put the htmltext of field "mainText" into field "mainText"
   end if
end mouse


<h1 color="159,59,0">Vedas<br />
A Random Selection<br />
of Sutras</h1>

gets turned around. It becomes

<p><b><font size="34">Vedas</font></b></p>
<p><b><font size="34">A Random Selection</font></b></p>
<p><b><font size="34">of Sutras</font></b></p>

?? where does the font size becomes "34" . Even with the font size of field increases, it stays at size="34"??

    I think Swami wants a toggle, so it's likely the field won't ever be empty.
