Tagging Character Formatting


The fourth line works in a similar way:



The “it” is a RazzmaTag code that specifies italic.

It’s followed by a pipe symbol to separate the Find and Replace entries.

Next comes a QuarkXPress tag for italic, <I>.

That’s followed by the “Find What Text” code, ^&, again to tell Word you want to include the italicized text it finds.

After that, there’s another <I> to tell Quark to stop with the italic already. (You could also use <$>.)

Finally, we have a plus sign and the code for tagging character formatting, which is a capital F. And again, there’s a carriage return.

And that’s how it’s done.

Here are the RazzmaTag codes that signify the various kinds of character formatting you can look for and tag:

Bold = bo

Italic = it

Bold and italic = bi

Underline = ul

Strikethrough = st

Superscript = ss

Subscript = sb

Small caps = sc

All caps = ac


And here is a summary of the RazzmaTag codes that specify whether to tag paragraph style formatting, character style formatting, or directly applied character formatting:

+P = paragraph style formatting

+A = character style formatting

+F = character formatting (such as bold or italic)
