Determining If a Field Contains Any Formatted Text

I need to know if a field contains any formatted text (italics, bold, underline, etc.) regardless of its position or content. By searching discussions on this website and others, I have discovered ways to format and unformat selected text and whole fields using various functions, but I have not found a function or script step that will return a "yes" or "no" to the question: does this field contain any formatted text, that is, does it use fonts that are not "regular."


Any ideas or suggestions on how to do this?
