That's not strictly true, though it is true that (AFAIK) there's no
provision in the text filter for applying styling within a paragraph.
It'd probably be possible to have it apply some styling as it went in
much the same way the properties palette does it. That'd most likely be
ugly, hard to use, and a waste of time given the planned support for
char styles, however.

Yeah. Regex aren't perfect, but they're very powerful. I thought I
posted a quote converter here a while ago, but perhaps it was on a
bugnote. The QRegexp documentation is very useful for getting the hang
of Qt's specific regexp support - it uses perl-like extended regex, but
is not perl-compatible.
