not many will write speculative code for this vague description, at least I won't.

You need to provide a real data snippet "from the actual file".

E.g. it's completely unclear how to distinguish "text" from the rest.

And in general please show more effort to code it yourself with the techniques learned from this thread.

otherwise ppl will start to complain that this is not a "code writing service"

    LanX, I completely understand and agree with you, my bad. The help I have received should be enough for me to continue. Could I ask one last question as I couldn't find an explanation on the site, please? What is the function of the d/l and the select links on the right side of each reply? I assume I need to select and answer using the select link, right? Thank you!

      first of all please provide a good example.

      Folks here love to help but hate to waste time.

      They are rarely used, it's about "downloading" <code> sections, i.e. displaying them in original format and isolation without HTML pollution.

      I mostly just click the download beneath a code section.
