Bob,

That is a really excellent request and a great idea, but unfortunately it
is not implemented in Acrobat JavaScript. In general, I don't think there
is a way to write anything to an HTML doc from within PDF JavaScript, which
is unfortunate since PDF JavaScript supports things like:

"Make this sentence big.".big();

which encapsulates the string in HTML "big" tags.
