By what means were you attempting to modify the text styles?

If you modify the text styling properties of the field object itself, 
remember that style runs within the field will override those.

You could have your script paste with putting the clipboardData["text"] 
into the selection, and you can strip style runs to inherit field 
properties with "put fld X into fld X".
