    How to Append Formatted Text to an XMLElement's Contents

      Hi All,

       

      I need to fill an XMLElement's contents property sequentially with several texts, each of which has its own different formatting (i.e., strikethrough, textDecoation, etc.).

       

      I tried sequential calls of:

       

      var myText:Text = myXmlElement.insertTextAsContent(contentString, XMLElementPosition.ELEMENT_END);

       

      The content from my variable contentString is successfully appened to the XMLElement's content (its single Text element in XMLElement.texts). However once I set a style property, such as strikeThrough, it continues to affect every additional content added via succesive calss to myXmlElement.insertTextAsContent(contentString, XMLElementPosition.ELEMENT_END);.

       

      My question: how do I make sure that styles such as myText.strikeThru will affect only the ext being appended for the current myText, and not any content added in successive calls?

       

      TIA,

      mlavie

       

       

       

      myText.strikeThru = myStrikethrough;
