Couple of HTML questions

If it is HTML5 deployment you are looking to do from LC, how time critical
is your project? At the moment, HTML5 deployment is still quite broken in
many ways. It may be best to wait until LC10 which is using a whole new
engine (which looks very promising).
That said, the current engine 'CAN' do what you have 'asked' for sure, both
'post tData to URL(tUrl)' and 'set the textstyle of char 10 to 20 of fld
"myField" to "bold"' (although that will depend on what texttype is already
in that field potentially - it can be a bit kooky at times).
Other things in html5 deployment you will run into that will most likely
frustrate a little.
Regarding 'post', note the following from the LC dictionary:
Cross-platform note: The HTML5 engine only supports HTTP and HTTPs
protocols. ((ie, you can't use file;//, ftp://, etc))
Cross-platform note: URLs fetched by the HTML5 engine from a domain other
than that of the hosting the page may be blocked by web browsers, unless
the server hosting the URL sets the "Access-Control-Origin" header
appropriately. ((But as you are likely hosting the PHP you will have
control over that))
If you run into any specific HTML5 deployment issues I'd be happy to help
you through if you want to PM me at all.
