Search And Replace In A Rich Text Field

This Lotus Script code will run through a rich text field and search for a specific character or character code, and replace it with another, or remove it. It can them either replace the text back into the rich text field or place it into a regular text field, which intern converts it to text. The code below replaces all of the chr(13) and chr(10)'s, which represent a carriage return in rich text, with a html BR tag, then places it all into a text field. NOTE: For this code to work the document must first be saved.
