I need the cliptext to use the CSS native to that specific template, so I can change things on the fly. but I can't figure out how to make the cliptext work. Is there a handy how-to by the numbers available?

      I have several ClipText files that I have modified for my own use. There
      is information on how to write a ClipText file contained in the EditPlus
      help file - see "Features -> ClipText Window -> ClipText Library".

      What follows is a portion of a ClipText file I have developed for using
      EditPlus as a word processor that uses HTML for its text formatting:

      This Clip Lib is designed to be the HTML equivalent to Microsoft Word's
      normal.dot. It contains HTML tags that are useful for the preparation of
      documents rather than web pages; documents that are, however, viewed in
      a web
      browser. This version has been modified to work with EditPlus.

      #T=Blank HTML page
      <!doctype html>
      <style type="text/css">
      a{background-color:transparent; text-decoration:none;}
      a:link, a:visited, a:active, a:hover{color:navy;}
      html, body{background-color:white; color:black;}
      body{font-family:Georgia,"Times New Roman",Times,serif; font-size:12pt;
      h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6{font-family:Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif;}
      h2, h3, h4, h5, h6{font-weight:lighter;}
      hr{background-color:black; color:black; border:0; height:1px;
      text-align:center; width:80%;}
      ... some clip text cut from here


      #T=Non-breaking space
      #T=… Ellipses

      #T=& Ampersand
      #T=" Double quote
      #T=' Single quote
      #T=• Bullet

      ... Some Clip Text cut from here
      <!-- ^! -->
      #T=Line break
      #T=Heading 1
      #T=Heading 2
      #T=Heading 3
      #T=Heading 4
      #T=Horizontal Rule
      #T=Underline text
      <span class="underline">^!</span>
      ... Much more Clip Text follows from here

      "^!" is the cursor insertion point; so if you type "The quick brown fox"
      then highlight that text in the edit window then press the "Italic"
      ClipText entry you get "<i>The quick brown fox</i>" - simple.

      If you want a copy of my file click here

      Post a reply if you want more help. IMHO, ClipText is what makes
      EditPlus, there are lots of good text editors but very few have such a
      useful AND simple enhancement.
