Styled Text, htmlText and Variables

I think the fact that you cannot set or get the htmlText of a variable 
is the reason which makes them faster than fields.
You can however put the thmlText of a field into a variable and then do 
things to that to afterwards put it back into the htmlText of a field. 
You just can't set the style or such, instead use the replace and 
replaceText commands.
