Create a button called "Test".
Put the following code into the script of the button "Test"
Click the button "Test" !!!
on mouseUp
   local tText
   -- create tab-delimited text

"The glory of the one who moves all things" into line 1 of tText
   put "Paradiso.01 2" & tab & "per l’universo penetra, e risplende" & tab &
"permeates the universe and glows" into line 2 of tText
   put "Paradiso.01 3" & tab & "in una parte più e meno altrove." & tab &
