Thanks for the suggestion. I'm considering using multiple fields but am not
sure yet as bulleting needs to be able to applied and removed at will, plus
I have to support up to two levels of indenting. But one item in your code
caught my eye: formattedText. I've used all of the formatted... properties
before except this one. Thanks for that!
