getLineText and HtmlText woes

hey all

For a project, we’re inserting a huge string into a textfield to format the whole thing. Then we copy each string into an array, and generate new textfields per array entry.

(we need to animate each line seperately)

Trouble is, we now have to incorporate links as well (dang). The html formatting works fine in the main field we use FOR formatting, but the html tags go apecrap when we use the getLineText method.

Does anyone here knwo of a way to extract exact linetext, yet maintain the html tags?
