How many chars in the text?
I'd wager that unless it's uncommonly enormous, you may find that the
one-time cost of writing a handler to use the styledText array of the
field will speed things up so much you may not even need anything more
than a brief watch cursor.
If you can post a sample project with text of similar length we may have
another good opportunity like the many forum threads we've seen where
long processes become brief blips with iterations from the community.
