HTMLtext and printing

Hi Shari,

What is a nice doc? Which programme did you use to create the RTF  
file? And how did you make the HTML file? Did you read the data from  
disk, change it, and set the htmlText? For RTF, you should use the  
rtfText property.

I know this works. You must be doing something wrong. If you can give  
more details on what you're doing and post the relevant part of your  
script, we might be able to help.

Best regards,
