Identifying italics in FileMaker Pro field

I have a large FileMaker Pro database with fields that contain some text in italics. I want to create a FMP script that will locate that text so that I can place html tags around it for export. Unless I’m missing something, I can’t do that within FMP’s scriptwriter, so I am wondering if there might be a way to do it with an appleScript that could be called from the FMP script.

Any ideas? Thanks.

Hello Charlie,

This can be done without using AppleScript. Consider FileMaker’s internal function called “GetAsSVG”…

I should have been more specific. I’m using FileMaker Pro 6 (yes, I know it is old but until now it has met my simple needs) and I don’t think it has GetAsSVG. It may be time to consider upgrading, but I’m hopeful there is another way. Thanks.
