I have a body field that users write articles in.

I would like to be allow them to highlight some text and run a script, the script would add [<div class="special">] at the start and [</div>] at the end.

So something like this

some textsome textsome text some text some textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome text
some textsome
[<div class="special">] textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome[</div>]

 textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome textsome text


I do not want to use styles and I want to retain global control over these articles that finally make their way to a website.

Any ideas anyone?

That's going to be a very tough one, I think... So it's in a browser? The rich-text field, is it a standard <textarea>, a Java applet or some other solution? What do you see when you look at the page source, in HTML??

No styles?? Then what does class="special" mean???

I think we can do it through Lotus Script. It can append the Div and also append the path for the CSS file.

ok i need to give you guys mor info...

the notes database is a content management system, people are attached through notes clients not a browser..

the rtf field is translasted into html as it goes through domino for publishing.

i would like to be able to in notes allow users to wrap some html around certain paragraphs hence the [], so domino knows it is html.
that way when it reaches the website i can control it look and feel in the global .css file.

Maddy, you were right once again.

Still, I think what you want is not possible in LotusScript, on the back-end document: the content of a rich-text field must be saved prior to LotusScript handling.

It might be possible though in Formula language or in the front-end document (NotesUIDocument). Try this:

Sub Click(Source As Button)
  Dim workspace As New NotesUIWorkspace
  Dim uidoc As NotesUIDocument
  Set uidoc = workspace.CurrentDocument
  ' assume the current field has some selected text
  Call uidoc.Cut
  Call uidoc.Inserttext({[<div class="special">]})
  Call uidoc.Paste
  Call uidoc.Inserttext({[</div]})
End Sub

Okay, you have a point there, Madheeswar... I maybe shouldn't have given the code, so Tash would have had to look it up for her(?)self. I'll butt out for a while, and you should check your mail more often.

Im not understanding the politics of this at all, but gave the points to Sjef as he (?) provided me with the solution.
Madheeswar, I apologise if you feel you have been unjustifiably denied points and since Sjef feels you have a point, I will request to re-allocate points accordingly.

Thanks for your help chaps!

and yes sjef I am a girl!
