This is my Custom Function and I want to edit it


Why the statement "Mac only" ?
There is nothing Mac-specific about your function.

Mr. Robertson,

I hope this answer finds you well.

I was taught that Data Scheme such as "data:text/html," was Mac-only. Since I haven't worked with Windows for a long while, I never checked the validity of this information.
As it turns out, after a fast research, I found out that
"data scheme is supported by Opera 7.20 and above, as well as Safari and Konqueror. Internet Explorer 7 and below, however, do not currently support it. Internet Explorer 8 and above only supports data URIs for images in CSS" (

Thank you for the remark; I have changed the statement already.
All the best.

no need of so many escaped quotes.

Substitute all occurences of \" with a single '

Ciao. Daniele,

Tutto bene? I truly hope everything is well with you.
You are right; the CF could've been written with single quotes instead of back-slashed double-quotes.
However, since I'm a "user who likes to develop" :-), I write and share Custom Functions also for others like me: those who analyze codes in order to understand them and learn. That's the reason I sometimes write functions that look so "pedagogic". :-)
Thanks for your remark, though; I'll leave as it is for now then change it in a week or so.

Uno abraccio,
