Hi all. I'm attempting to apply text formatting to text that has been
retrieved from my database. Prior to this, the text has been saved to the
database with appended custom tags. What I would actually like to achieve

1. Retrieve string from database: <b>BO</b>OK<b>IE</b>
2. Remove tag <b> and </b>
3. Apply Bold formatting to "BO" and "IE". I would like to bold the text
in between these tags "<b>...</b>"
4. Display the formatted version of the actual text "BOOKIE" in my RCP

So, far I have been successful in retrieving the string and removing the
tags. However, my problem would be recognizing which portion of the string
to apply BOLD via index.

My formatting function as follows:

for(int a = 0; a < condition.length(); a++){
styleRange = new StyleRange(a, 1, null, null, SWT.NORMAL);
styleRange.start = ? //How to find the start index
styleRange.length = ? //How to find the length
styleRange.fontStyle ^= SWT.BOLD;

A case to point, I know for a fact that in order to bold "BO" I have,

styleRange.start = 0;
styleRange.length = 2;

With this, I can bold "BO". But this is given that I already know
firsthand the position of "BO" in the word "BOOKIE". As compared to
<b>BO</b>OK<b>IE</b> where the position of "BO" would be

styleRange.start = 3;
styleRange.length = 2;

So, after removing the tags, the index are already shifted. Anyone got any
idea or suggestions for a workaround on this? Thanks alot for reading!!!
