  Sample input:
MakeHTML ( "

  Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)

Designed to allow passthrough of html tags in text. Originally needed to allow links in text to come through in an email.
The only damage this function does to CSS is to strip the curly quote's and replace them with straight quotes.

Straight CSS output, not desired when sending an html email.

You can not just copy and paste this one, you need to get into the source code of the web page and copy it from there as just viewing it above does not get the escaped characters properly.
