B4J Question '<HTMLEditor htmlText=""' is ignored

As far as I can tell, setting htmlText to empty has no effect on what is returned when retrieving the .HtmlText of an HTMLEdit control. I want to edit a fragment but I seem to be forced to edit a complete HTML document. Is that the case?

Maybe I don't understand what the htmlText attribute actually does. What I had hoped was that it would let me set the initial markup for the text edited in the control.

The default is to wrap html and body markup around everything. I just wanted to have everything as is, or else with just a div around it. However, whether the fxml has the default htmlText or a empty string for the htmlText, the string returned from the control itself is always wrapped in html and body tags. So if I want to pull out the text that was entered, then I need to parse it out of what is returned by the control. Not optimal, but workable.
