Syntax: GetAsCSS ( text )
textAny expression that resolves to a text string.
Data type returned: Text
GetAsCSS() returns a representation of the specified text string, marked up with CSS (Cascading Style Sheet) tags. CSS can capture rich text formatting that has been applied to a text string.
Representing formatted text as CSS means that you can export stylized text and have it rendered properly by CSS-aware applications, such as web browsers.
GetAsCSS() is also useful within FileMaker itself because you can determine what special formatting, if any, has been applied to a field.
The field myField contains Go Team and has manually been formatted as follows:
Font = Helvetica, Font Size = 36 points, Font Color = red, Font Style = bold.
