You have to do replacement of the size value in the field's htmlText (or 
perhaps styledText)

I have code that does this. I can provide it to you if you like. I don't 
claim it is the bets or most effiecent. Unfortunately, I am gone for the 
rest of today, s tomorrow is the earliest I could send code to you.
