    Indesign text tagging




      Is it possible to tag a portion of text, so a Text or Word object without it sitting in a Story?


      Something like this.


      var app:Application = InDesign.app;

      var doc:Document = app.activeDocument;

      var root:XMLElement = doc.xmlElements.firstItem()

      var selection:Object = doc.selection[0];


      var node:XMLElement = root.xmlElements.add("MyTagName");



      This throws the following error


      Error: Cannot change the element to be associated with this object. Try creating a new element.




      var node:XMLElement = root.xmlElements.add("MyTagName", selection);


      puts the new element inside a Story element.


      Thanks for any help.
