Roger,
thanks for your post. This helped
I have so far now a working toolbar with bold, italic, underline, textsize and alignment. The buttons all use one single behaviour script.
Your sample put me in the right direction. 

I will post my solution later next week to this list for those who are interested in it.

Thanks again.

Regards,
Matthias
