Thanks Andre -- this solves the practical problem (except for Word's inability to actually paste size 10 text in any font -- ah, Microsoft!) -- it gives the proper formatting as specified in the formatting field.

I'm still curious about the failure of the htmltext function to include font & size info. Is the documentation just plain wrong?

Hi Peter,

> Why doesn't the htmlText of the field get onto the clipboard?
I recently discovered that, after "select text of fld "suchField" :

1 - put the selectedText into fld "essai"  -->> doesn't keep format 
when paste
2 - put the selection into fld "essai" -- >> idem
3 - set the clipboardData["text"] to the selectedText -->> idem
4 - set the clipboardData["text"] to the selection -- >> idem
BUT :
5 - copy the selectedText -->> paste in Word remains formatted
6 - copy the selection -- >> remains formatted
