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)
