The following styles are used in the HTML:

    font-size: 12px;

    background-color: #FFFFFF;

    border: 1px dotted #CCCCCC;

    padding: 4px;


.Lingokeyword {

    color: #0000C8;


.LingoCustom {

    color: #008000;


.LingoDefault {

    color: #000000;


.LingoLiteral {

    color: #808080;


.LingoComment {

    color: #C80000;


Note - this is an authoring only utility (it only runs in Director in 'authoring mode') since it is getting Director's scriptEditor to the bulk of the work.


You can download a ZIP (20k) of the Utility Movie here (put into Director's Xtras folder and access it via the Xtras menu).

You can download the Director 8.5 source file here. (requires OS Controls Xtra)


Note: If you have changed your default text and colour preferences in Director, you will need to change the preferences used by this utility movie - look for a file called "LingoToHTMLUtil4.txt" in the prefs folder of Director (the movie will create it the first time it is run). It will look like this:


FontNames="Monaco, Courier New" size=1






$(script "App")



You will need to edit the colours to match your preferences set in Director.
