Thank you for the post.
This was previously reported here:
Testing confirmed the difference in behavior between Perform Script and Perform Script on Server when passing styled text. Development says this is a design limitation because Perform Script on Server will only return a simple string result and not a styled text string.
If you would like to see a change in this behavior, I would encourage you to enter this as a suggestion into our Feature Requests web form at:
These web form suggestions are monitored and read by our Development and Product Management departments and then discussed and considered for a future release. Although I could copy and paste your post into the web form, there are some questions asked that only you can answer.
Thanks for your prompt confirmation of this issue/limitation.
To clarify: My need was to transfer styled text TO server, not received styled text as ScriptResult FROM server.
I quite honestly don't see why this limitation is needed or justifiable. But if it is a design limitation, it would be great to have it documented in the relevant help documents regarding Perform Script on Server e.g. http://www.filemaker.com/help/13/fmp/en/html/scripts_ref1.36.3.html
I have filed a request (thanks for the link) for styled text and hope somebody will adopt the idea.
