I am a bit confused:

Do you want to:

1. Take some htmlText, strip out its HTML characteristics and set the 
label of your button to the raw text?

2. Use the htmlText "as is"?

Of course it would be 'lovely' if one could just do what I tried

( set the htmlText of btn "targe" to the htmlText of fld "fff" )

but, right now, the only thing I can think of is making a group with a 
transparent field
overlaying a button with a " " label so it is blank.
