Invisible HTMLText Character?

Here is a thought.
Create two narrow fields. The first field consists of one line of text
that wraps into two lines in the field. (Perhaps a bullet and you want
to indent the wrapped portion of the line.)
Run this script:
put "" into field 2
wait 10 tick --So you can see the changes
put the htmltext of field 1 into tHTMLtext
--Find out where the lines break using the formattedText
put the formattedtext of field 1 into tText
--The first line is the beginning of the bullet
--The second line is to be indented.
put line 2 of tText into tString
put the offset(tString, tHTMLtext) into tNum
--Create nonbreaking spaces
--If you use breaking spaces they are ignored by HTML
--at the start of a line.
repeat 4 times --More or less
put " " after temp
put temp before char tNum in tHTMLtext
set the htmltext of field 2 to tHTMLtext
The second line (the wrapped line) will be indented by 4 nonbreaking
spaces beyond the first line.
There may be problems if there is formatting in the wrapped line.
My apologies to and the other respondents to this thread. Sorry, I
haven't been paying attention.
