Hi, it's me again. I am kind of getting stuck. Maybe someone here can help me 
(again)? I tried counting the characters and then using selecttext but I get 
an index out of range error. I tried stripping whitespace and the counting but 
then the wrong part of the text was selected. I attached the script, sample 
text and style template. You will have to change the path to the textfile and 
template file in the script, unless your username is chantal too :).
