    [CS5-5.5][JS] Replace xml element content with user selection

    JohnDevlon

      Hi,

       

      I'm trying to write a script that replaces xml element content with a user selection.

       

      I have document containing a textframe with a "root" tag attached. In this frame I have 2 paragraphs, each tagged with a different tag.

       

      I would like to replace the content of one of the paragraphs with the content of a text selection.

       

      This piece of code doesn't seem to work:

       

      myXMLElement.xmlContent = app.selection[0];

       

      The problem is that almost all properties of the xmlelement (paragraphs, words, etc) are read-only.

       

      Does anyone have any suggestion?

       

      Thanx
